In a book that TV personality John Walsh calls the story of "a remarkable career in law enforcement," author James Plousis describes the exciting people, cases, and issues he's been involved with over more than four decades--Donald J. Trump, Bernie Madoff, 9/11, Little Nicky Scarfo, Hurricane Katrina, Chris Christie, and much more. Written in clear, straight-ahead prose, "Jersey Lawman: A Life On the Right Side of Crime" is the product of a life spent helping good people and putting the bad ones behind bars.----- "I have played many law-enforcement roles as a sheriff, cop, and federal agent in television and movies, so it is an honor to recommend this book about the real life of a sheriff and U.S. marshal in New Jersey. Jim Plousis is a man I know and have worked with to make Camden, New Jersey, a safer community." -Actor Brian Dennehy, winner of two Tony Awards, a Golden Globe Award, a Screen Actors Guild Award, and six Emmy nominations.----- FORMER U.S. MARSHAL'S MEMOIR NAMED SECOND-BEST NON-FICTION BOOK BY THE PUBLIC SAFETY WRITERS ASSOCIATION IN A NATIONAL COMPETITION"Jersey Lawman," a memoir of former U.S. marshal James Plousis' 40 years in law enforcement, won second place in the 2020 competition.The award, which PSWA announced on July 12, recognizes a book whose proceeds go to the U.S. Marshals Survivors Benefit Fund. Freelance writer George Ingram collaborated with Plousis on "Jersey Lawman."----- The narrative tells of Plousis and his career in law enforcement--from rookie cop to the youngest elected county sheriff in America at that time, and from his appointment as U.S. marshal for New Jersey to chairman of the New Jersey Parole Board.Plousis was a police officer in Ocean City, NJ, before being elected sheriff of Cape May County at age 32. While serving for 5 terms, he earned national recognition for his innovative approaches to law enforcement. In 2002, President George W. Bush appointed Plousis as U.S. marshal. In this position he fought to bring the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Safe Surrender program to the Garden State and worked on high-profile cases here and abroad. For 7 years afterward he was chairman of the New Jersey Parole Board. He now chairs the Casino Control Commission in Atlantic City. In the book Plousis also relates many personal efforts, including a humanitarian mission to earthquake-ravaged Haiti. ----- When they began working on the book, the 2 Ocean City, NJ, residents agreed that proceeds from "Jersey Lawman" would go to the U.S. Marshals Survivors Benefit Fund, a private non-profit corporation formed "exclusively for charitable and educational disbursements of its funds to the surviving family members of active United States Marshals, Deputy U.S. Marshals, Marshals Service Employees, and Special Deputy U.S. Marshals who are killed in the line of duty." Daniel J. O'Donnell, chairman of the fund, called their offer "a generous contribution to help the families of slain U.S. marshals."----- The Public Safety Writers Association was founded in 1997. Its membership is open to both new and experienced, published, and not yet published writers. Members include personnel in many fields of public safety, those who write about public safety, and those who are simply interested in the genre.----- Proceeds benefit the U.S. Marshals Survivors Benefit Fund.
