Arizona's location on the international border to Mexico gave it the dubious distinction of being the 1 drug import capital of the United States in the 1970's. In an effort to eradicate the flow of illicit drugs into the country, along with the crimes and violence accompanying them, a hand- picked group culled from various statewide law enforcement agencies were brought together to form an elite narcotics Strike Force that was the first of its kind in the nation. The Strike Force had one major mandate: to identify, arrest and stop those involved in the importation, distribution and sales of illicit drugs throughout the deserts, mountains, cities and towns of southern Arizona. Tucson Police Officer Neil Tietjen. a native New Yorker and Marine Corps veteran who had served in the Viet Nam War, was one of the initial agents chosen for the assignment to the new interagency Strike Force. A memoir culled from Neil Tietjen's own police reports and personal journals, 'Old School Narc' chronicles in often pulse-pounding, heart-wrenching detail how he and his fellow Strike Force agents pioneered undercover drug investigations across a vast and inhospitable urban and wilderness landscape. In that pre-internet, pre-cellphone and pre-law enforcement technology era, Strike Force agents investigated and pursued their prey, 'Old School': succeeding in their missions and staying alive with little more than their wits, badges, guns and massive amounts of tenacity and courage. 'Old School Narc' provides an insider's view of what it was like to live and work behind the badge: undercover and in disguise while leading parallel lives among heinous drug traffickers whom violence and death were simply the tools of their trade. Along with his fellow agents, Neil Tietjen went above and beyond the call of duty to make the streets of his country safer, without sacrificing his humility, compassion or sense of humor in the progress.
