According to the book description, Practical Narcotics Investigations is “for the beginning uniform police officer to the experienced Detective. Geared to be a no nonsense how to guide that is an excellent aid to police academy students beginning their career in law enforcement as well as individuals studying in the Criminal Justice field.”
In 1982, Tyrone Powers joined the Maryland State Police. In 1985, he left the Maryland State Police and joined the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). His duties included the investigation of violations of federal law and the preparation of investigatory results in written form in order that violators could be adequately prosecuted.

He is the author of Eyes to My Soul: The Rise or Decline of a Black FBI Agent. According to one reader/reviewer, “When I bought this book I was just looking for background information on the FBI from an former African-American FBI agents perspective. The book is very insightful, and gives great details on how there is still a hostile attitude toward African-Americans in Law Enforcement among their non-minority colleagues. It is a must read for any minority (especially African-Americans) interested in a career in Law Enforcement!”

Cahill ran for and won the office of High Sheriff of Essex County, Massachusetts, becoming the first Democrat elected to the post in it’s over 300 year history.
