More Indian Ernie

Insights from the Streets

UBC Press, Purich Publishing

Retired Police Sergeant Ernie Louttit takes you back to the streets of Saskatoon in his second book, a street cop’s view of the realities of dealing with prostitutes, street gangs, drunk drivers, and other offenders. He gives people who are rarely exposed to crime a view of what policing “at the sharp end” is like, while acknowledging the struggles of those who are forced by circumstance to live in high-crime areas. The first point of contact for persons with mental illness and addictions is often the police, and Louttit highlights how changes in handling these individuals must occur. Other topics addressed in this fast-paced book include drugs and drug dealing, murder, changes in policing, and leadership. As before, Louttit looks at and comments on all this with empathy.

Ernie Louttit retired from the Saskatoon Police Service in October 2013, the same time he published his first book, Indian Ernie, which led him to a new career in writing and motivational and public speaking.
