Chris Allgood (retired Caldwell Police Chief)
Based on Robert Sobba's excellent record as an officer and police chief, when I was elected governor of Idaho, I appointed him as the Director of the Idaho Department of Law Enforcement. Robert was dedicated to public service and professionalism during that time. I recommend his book to anyone interested in getting a unique look inside of police work.
Phil Batt, former Idaho Governor
