Ga. officer recovering from brain injury writes book


By Tim Eberly
Atlanta Journal-Constitution

ATLANTA — Pat Cocciolone is putting her story on paper. “It’s not going to be another one of those ‘cop’ books: ‘This is how I got hurt,’” said Cocciolone, who’s 49.

Her book, which she’s been working on for the past year, will document the 1997 shooting that forced Cocciolone to retire from the Atlanta Police Department and killed her partner, John “Rick” Sowa. It also will detail her recovery from the brain damage that stole her ability to read, write, walk and talk.
