What’s it really like to be a Black police officer in today’s America?

“Defund the police!” is shouted in the streets.
A.C.A.B. is spray painted on precinct buildings.
Countless citizens believe all police are racists.

In this era of civil unrest and political divide, how do Black cops—or any cops—maintain the motivation and commitment to do their job? Former police officer, co-founder of BLEXIT, and Founder & CEO of The Officer Tatum—Brandon Tatum shares his story and the stories of other police officers in the pages of his new book, Beaten Black and Blue. Read why they joined the force, what it’s really like on the streets, and how they continue to fight the good fight.

Forget what you think you know and learn the truth!

Brandon Tatum is a former Tucson police officer who served as the Director of Urban Outreach at Turning Point USA. Brandon is the co-founder of BLEXIT, and the founder and CEO of three companies, including The Officer Tatum, LLC.
