Cop Stories gives a no-holds-barred inside look at the experiences of Dick Ellwood, Baltimore City Police Department Officer from 1965 through his retirement in 1990. Depictions of the teeming street life of one of the most dangerous cities in the nation. From walking a beat in his boyhood neighborhood and his adrenaline-fueled work in vice to his ascent to detective and eventually supervisor in the homicide unit, Ellwood doesn’t miss a chance to get down and dirty with the gritty details you won’t find on primetime TV.

Investigating murders, arresting prostitutes, fighting corruption, working the race riots of 1968, Ellwood had his lighter moments. He arrested his childhood hero, Mickey Mantle, for public drunkenness, and was propositioned in a gay night club. Cop Stories reveals what it truly means to "Protect and Serve".
