“I truly thought my reports and journals might be of interest to GM to be used as a training tool for new officers. But the idea was rejected due to security personnel being hired by outside agencies. So I put it in book form. Some will find it degrading and others may find it interesting. Most have no idea what takes place in a manufacturing plant, (up to now). Whichever, category you fall into I’m sure you’ll feel you got your money’s worth.”
About the Author Don was hired by General Motors Assembly Division at Willow Run Michigan in December of 1959 as a security officer. Soon after he was nicknamed “TOP COP”, by plant employees as his reports of shop rule violations were numerous. He moved up to the ladder to Sergeant in 1971 and in 1978 he was the 274th employee to receive life saving citation from General Motors. His actions were noted and he was soon promoted to chief of security and fire protection.
