Tales from the Bat Cave is a delightful read and a personal account of the author’s experience as a Police Officer during the 60’s and 70’s. The true stories depict an era when policemen carried .38 caliber revolvers and didn’t have portable radios or air conditioning in their vehicles or copier machines and computers at the station. During the mid-1960’s and early 1970’s, an expressway was being built in and around the City of Toledo, Ohio. One section was on the western edge of the patrol district, and it was there that O.J. and his fellow officers discovered a spot under the overpass, where they could sit undetected and watch for unlawful activity. The concealed stakeout soon became known as the “Bat Cave”.
