Documentary honoring fallen officers mandatory for Texas academy classes
from Fort Worth Star-Telegram
A Wisconsin police officer shows off bullet fragments that were surgically removed from his body after a shootout with a sex offender. A small boy remembers how an officer he didn't know bought him a cookie at McDonald's and seconds later the officer was fatally shot in the head. The anecdotes vary in a 90-minute documentary, "Heroes Behind the Badge," but each is a harrowing story of law enforcement officers who were injured or killed on duty. The film, which is mandatory for all Texas police academy classes, is scheduled for its first Dallas/Fort Worth screening Saturday in Watauga.
