Award-winning writer, Deputy Cortez has served twenty-one years in active and reserve functions in patrol, investigations, training, undercover, and bailiff in Harris County, Texas.
When she writes about policing, she speaks from the heart and the mind of one who knows that her best friends are her gun and ballistic vest. She speaks directly to young officers learning the ropes and the “old heads” who have seen it all.
Sarah’s message about why she chose a career in Law Enforcement after a successful corporate career will inspire your officers and supervisors. Her new book of essays, Tired, Hungry, Standing in One Spot for Twelve Hours: Essential Cop Essays (Texas Review Press, 2018) and her two books of poetry, Cold Blue Steel (Texas Review Press, 2013) and How to Undress a Cop (Arte Público Press, 2000), breathe life into the mundane daily grind and capture the intensity of crisis.
