Item Description...
Fortitude: Without Acknowledgment is more than a story of police corruption and job ethics, but a tale of will, character and perseverance. A David and Goliath story of a detective that has to go up against a corrupt sheriff; but first he has to achieve a private victory and tell the truth and be honorable to the core values of his profession. This story of moral courage is colored from an athlete's view of a winning mindset. The detective says that he got hold of the winning edge while training for the ironman triathlon. It gave him the moral, mental and physical momentum to endure the trial and tribulations of his agency during a fragmented six year period of corruption. Detective Jaramillo believes that our internal strength and mental toughness will emerge under pressure when we have the belief that the almighty God has confidence in us. The detective says the scandal did more than challenge his self-esteem and call into question his integrity in regards to his profession, but also tested his courage to be bold enough to pursue his dreams and goals in life. It was a leap of faith. This work is a reflection of more than twenty-five years of police work, his education in the criminal justice field, and his athletic experiences as a kickboxer, distance runner and a tri-athlete. What emerges is his personal philosophy of mental toughness and unrestricted belief in the almighty God. It was the dominating thoughts instilled in him by his parents that self-confidence and the respect of others comes from walking your talk and paying the price, day in and day out.

None  Feb 2, 2009
Great book. Especially if you are from the area and want to know more about what happened. This book explains alot of it. The book seemed to get dry at time. The author spent alot of time discussing his feelings which was okay, however they seemed to be repeated over and over using different words. Good reading, got it read in two days, couldnt put it down.
Fortitude  Jul 22, 2008
An excellent true story of how a courageous and dedicated officer stood up to overpowering entrenched power and finally won. As Danny had to reach deep within himself to find the strength and faith to carry him through difficult times, he shares his methods so that others can take heart in their own difficulties. Danny didn't tell the whole story, he told the part that can be verified by court records so that no one can say that it didn't happen. Actually, the corruption was much worse and had its foundation in previous administrations. All of that is corrected now, thanks to people like Dan Jaramillo who wouldn't dirty themselves by keeping silent. Dan paid a price for his efforts and he should be honored for his service to us all.

Thinking of becoming a cop?
Read this book.
Been on the job awhile and beginning to wonder
Read this book.
Sergeants, Lieutenants, Captains, do you feel like your boss is pushing you to push your people to bend, even break, thr rules?
Right, read the book. And remember that loyalty goes down, not just up.

This is a personal narrative, a fitness book and an ethics text all in one. As the last, it's the first I've seen in police ethics that is not just a list of no-no's or a collection of platitudes; but cites Aristotle, Immanuel Kant, Abe Maslow, Thomas Aquinas and the Bible. (In plain English, don't worry.) Though I don't think Detective Jaramillo would say you had to maintain his level, learn from him: physical and moral fitness go together. If your body won't take it, neither will your ideals. More police corruption, especially what Dan calls "noble corruption," comes from impatience, anger and fatigue; not fundamental dishonesty.
I was a forty year resident of what Dan calls "Cheyenne" in "Arapahoe County," worked with him in the jail back in 1980, and with one of his partners as far back as 1977. The story he tells is true. It was that bad. The sheriff concerned was no more essentially evil than you or me; but he brought disgrace on himself and his department because he'd worked in an agency that fostered deceit, occasional brutality and lying. Had he had a Dan Jaramillo as a Field Training Officer back when, he might be Sheriff today.
Good job, Dan; and a terrific book. It didn't surprise me when you caught that dude; but you never told me you were an author!
