GREENFIELD — Once known as the kid with the inquisitive mind, Eastern Hancock alumnus-turned investigative journalist Radley Balko now has a new title: author.
Balko has become known for his work in civil liberties and criminal justice reporting in the last decade. Combining his own reporting experiences with historical analysis, Balko describes the nationwide surge of SWAT teams in his book “The Rise of the Warrior Cop: The Militarization of America’s Police Forces.”
Balko, now a Nashville, Tenn., resident, will be welcomed home by friends and family Sept. 5 at a book signing in Indianapolis.
