This past Friday, Frank DeSario, a Boston Police Officer who shares details from his lengthy career in his book, “Badge #1: True Stories From a Boston Cop,” stopped by in Stoughton for a book signing.
In his book, DeSario shares his almost forty-year career in a vivid account of his experiences with the Boston Police Department.
The Mafia, gangland slayings, the Combat Zone, busing and race riots—Frank reveals what it was like to have a ringside seat at events that made history including tales of Whitey Bulger.
DeSario also shares the glamorous side of his job that included escorting high profile celebrities, religious leaders and political leaders during their visits to the Boston area.
The photos are vivid, but give the reader a true look at what is was like to be a Boston cop during the past four decades. Frank DeSario proudly covets his #1 badge as a symbol of strength, integrity, honor and pride.
Special thanks to Stoughton’s Hank Herbowy for sending along the photos of DeSario’s appearance at Maxie’s.
