A Noble But Onerous Duty

A Noble But Onerous Duty

An Autobiography by Former Director of Criminal Investigation Department


About The Book

Through these memories, the author hopes to inspire many who may have lost hope, believing they’re at the dead end to success. An adage says that if one road is blocked, there is always another one next to you. As a police officer, he also desires to make people aware of what challenges these devoted public servants encounter. This is written in an honest attempt to share the dangers and risks faced as they discharge their “noble but onerous” duty and the lack of proper channels for public servants to share their knowledge. However, he does not want these memories to go to waste and disappear almost unnoticed. That’s why he hopes this is an eye-opener leading to the difference among the readers.
