Texas Lawmen

April 12, 2008 (San Dimas, CA) Police-Writers.com is a website that lists state and local police officers who have written books. The website added three law enforcement officials from the State of Texas

 Ted Hinton became a Dallas County Sheriff’s Department deputy sheriff in 1932.  He was a member of the posse that confronted and killed the infamous Bonnie and Clyde.  Ted Hinton left the Dallas County Sheriff’s Department in 1941.  A pilot, Ted Hinton gave flying instruction to Army Air Corps recruits throughout World War II.  After the war, he opened restaurant and passed away in 1982.  Ted Hinton is the author of Ambush: The Real Story of Bonnie and Clyde.

 According to one reader, Ambush: The Real Story of Bonnie and Clyde, it “is Ted Hinton‘s account describing the early years and the facts leading up to the bloody end of two desperate criminals. Hinton speaks out as one of the six men who killed Bonnie and Clyde in a hailstorm of bullets without warning on the morning of May 23, 1934 near Gibsland, Louisiana. This book is well illustrated and provides several rare pictures. I recommend this book to readers.”

 Captain James Howell has been in law enforcement for over 30 years and is the Commander of the Dallas County Sheriff’s Department Criminal Investigations Division.  James Howell is the author of Copper Eyes and the co-author of Emerald Reflections.

 According to the book description of Copper Eyes, “Danielle Ramos is a new Dallas County deputy sheriff who recently left the El Paso Sheriff’s Department to move forward with her life following her divorce. The detective’s first murder case in Dallas County thrusts her into the world of a past serial killer who had decided that after twelve years, now is the time to start killing again. Danielle is merely in the way.”

 Chief Reece Daniel began his law enforcement career in 1976 with the Paris Police Department (Texas).  He joined the Farmers Branch Police Department in 1980, rising to the rank of Captain.  In 1999, he became the chief of police for the Rowlett Police Department; and, in 2006 he became the chief of police for the Jacksonville Police Department (Texas).

 Chief Reece Daniel has a AA in law enforcement; a BS in Criminology and Psychology; and, a MS in Criminal Justice.  He is a graduate of the FBI National Academy and holds a Criminal Justice Practitioner’s Certificate from the University of Virginia.  Chief Reece Daniel is the author of Desert Sunshine.

 According to the book description of Desert Sunshine, it “combines elements of modern law enforcement with the Old West of 1882. Ed Adair, retired police chief, moves back to his boyhood home in Arizona to become a Special Arizona Ranger, where he can indulge his insatiable appetite for western memorabilia and unsolved cases from the 1880s.”
