by George Vuilleumier
It’s a Cop’s Life follows the George Vuilleumier’s experiences over almost a half century in law enforcement: military, state, federal, and county. Not the “Dirty Harry” story seen on the movie screens, this is the saga of the life of a cop and a federal law enforcement agent on the street in the real world.
Starting at the age of eighteen, Vuilleumier will take you through the daring rescue missions of the U.S. Coast Guard in the North Atlantic and the Gulf Coast. After then struggling through one of the toughest police academies in the United States, he pursues a career as a trooper with the Massachusetts State Police. There he serves as an undercover vice officer, a narcotics investigator, and a prosecutor.
Vuilleumier’s next career change takes him to the U.S. Treasury, where he works as an Internal Affairs Agent on public corruption cases in Boston, Hartford, Newark, and New York City. This work often dictates Vuilleumier to work in an undercover capacity as he deals with organized crime figures. Next, Vuilleumier is appointed second in command of the Treasury’s ten-state western region. Later he becomes the Chief of Treasury of the eight-state southwest region. Through these positions, he continues to protect the Treasury Department’s integrity and pursue those who corrupt the system.
After a mandatory retirement, Vuilleumier returns back to the grass roots of law enforcement; he still serves as a Reserve Lieutenant with the Dallas County Sheriff’s Department, chasing drug dealers and other felons in Texas. In addition, he is the National President of the National Association of Chiefs of Police, with 12,000 command officer members nationwide.
