Cop Culture: Why Good Cops Go Bad

Chief of Police Scott Silverii is passionate about positive cultural change. Over two decades in policing gives Chief Silverii the experience and vision to believe there is always a better way. Scott spent 16 years working in policing’s special operations groups (SOG) with years of undercover narcotics and SWAT missions.

His passion for public service flourished while growing up in south Louisiana’s heart of Cajun Country. His life is seasoned by the Mardi Gras, hurricanes, oil spills, humidity, and crawfish boils. This gumbo of experience serves up a unique perspective in his writing.

Dr. Silverii attended the University of Southern Mississippi (Hattiesburg, MS.), then completed his Bachelor’s Degree from Nicholls State University (Thibodaux, Louisiana).

Twelve years and a lifetime later, he earned a Master of Public Administration (University of New Orleans, Louisiana) and a Ph.D. (University of New Orleans, Louisiana) all while working as a full-time law enforcement officer, and then as Chief of Police. He shares that “Perseverance and sacrifice can accomplish anything if you want it badly enough.”

Research for his doctoral dissertation, A Darker Shade of Blue: From Public Servant to Professional Deviant forms the core for this book, and is complimented by the thousands of miles traveled cross-country for interviews, observations and fellowship. He combines these experiences with academic research to bring you the most honest, accurate and compelling details of what life is like behind the thin blue line.

  1. Greetings! I know this is kinda off topic however I’d figured I’d ask.

    Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing a blog post or vice-versa?
    My website discusses a lot of the same topics as yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from each other.
    If you happen to be interested feel free to send me an e-mail.
    I look forward to hearing from you! Fantastic blog
    by the way!
