You will learn that, win or lose, God is with you always. Most of all, learn when to accept defeat and to wholeheartedly trust God, without questions, without doubts.

Because of this the NYPD responded by creating a new specialized unit that revolved around a decorated cop, Sergeant Liborio Lungaro and his team of beat officers. This story sheds light on the riveting back story of Lungaro’s character and how he’s taken on a journey that will change his life forever. It’s a story of twist and turns. Who’s good and who’s dirty. This story will keep you on the edge of your seat.
