Carteret Arts Forum proudly presents the highly decorated NYPD Police Officer, Al Sheppard, who takes us to the front lines of the most difficult jobs in police work.

Sheppard is the REAL DEAL!  E-Man chronicles his years in the NYPD's Emergency Services Unit with heart-pounding excitement. Sheppard was on the front lines during the era of Vietnam, Black Power, and the Urban Drug wars, and he survived it all. His book is rich with insider detail and wry humor. Prepare yourself for a rollicking lecture about his experiences as a Police Officer in the elite unit of the NYPD.

Sheppard was raised on the west side of Manhattan, NYC, known as "Hell's Kitchen," a neighborhood in the 1950's with few vocational options: its youth became cops, firemen, or priests. The other choice was crime. Sheppard became a cop and never regretted it.

He joined the NYPD in 1969 after serving two years in the US Army during the Viet-Nam War and was assigned to the NYPD Emergency Service Unit, the original Anti-Terrorist Team formed by the NYPD (A-Team).

In the course of his career, he served in the NYPD Intelligence Division that protected
foreign and domestic officials (including Fidel Castro, the Shah of Iran, and presidents); participated in confidential international investigations with the Drug Enforcement Administration; and was assigned to the Major Case Squad of the Special Investigations Division to solve bank robberies, kidnappings, and his most challenging serial murderer, the Zodiac Killer.

A highly decorated police officer, Sheppard was inducted into the NYPD’s Honor Legion, the Military Order of the Purple Heart, and received a Letter of Commendation from Vice-President George Bush. He wrote a memoir to tell it like it is and show us what it is like to be on the front lines of the most difficult jobs in police work.
