Yerington, NV – Patricia L. Blake is a retired police lieutenant and the author of Touched by the Hand of God: In the City of Angels – Send Me!

Touched by the Hand of God: In the City of Angels – Send Me! is a personal account of the powerful emotional side of police work and its impact on officers and families.

“I realized my story could make a difference with people who find themselves in times of terror, stress or desperation. It’s important for them to know that there is a higher power that care and is there for you. I hope that it makes a difference in people's lives,” says Patty. “And I hope that they gain new insight and perspective on police officers. I believe most of us are there for the right reason.”

Patty says Touched by the Hand of God: In the City of Angels – Send Me! required three years of intense work.

Patty was inspired to become a police officer following a traumatic near-death experience with her first husband as a 19-year-old.

Since that fateful day, Patty says God has guided her throughout her life to protect the innocent and the vulnerable, and she would go on to serve a police officer for 33 years.

“It was a calling. I wanted to make a difference to help the children,” says Patty. “I loved working in the streets and in the field, because it's so fluid, and you make such a difference. I was incredibly blessed to work different assignments and I always saw them as a chance to learn how to be a better leader and make a difference not only in the community but with the officers themselves.”

Touched by the Hand of God: In the City of Angels – Send Me! is dedicated to the incredible heroes, our first responders and our military warriors.
