Sworn to Serve & Protect
Raised in Queens, Corey Pegues watched drugs uproot his stable, working-class neighborhood almost overnight. When times got tough, he had a choice: continue to watch his family struggle to buy food or sell dope. He chose the latter, eventually becoming part of the notorious Supreme Team street gang. In this provocative memoir, Corey Pegues tells how a onetime crack dealer became one the highest ranking members of the largest police force in the country. Corey tears down the wall to discuss discrimination within the NYPD and talks candidly about the distrust that exists between law enforcement and the citizens they are sworn to protect.
