He has unique operational experiences during Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, the BP Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill, an active school shooter incident, and the gruesome murder of a child that captured international attention, and featured on the HLN's Dr. Drew Show.

He has also seen the best of humanity, community and hope. The combination of both lives lived makes him the father, friend and son who prays continually for restoration of the spirit.

A Darker Shade of Blue: From Public Servant to Professional Deviant; Policing's Special Operations Culture sneaks you behind the badge, revealing the mystique of police culture's "Thin Blue Line."

Come on-duty, undercover and after hours as Chief Scott Silverii escorts you through a multi-year, cross-country examination into the fraternity of law enforcement.

Ever wonder what it's like to join the force? Now you will discover what becoming a Brother of the Badge means, and the effects of belonging has on the actual people behind the shield.

Becoming blue involves a powerful socialization process sometimes leading once ethical, by-the-book public servants into a secret subculture engaged in deviant behaviors bumping up to anti-social activities and criminalistic conduct.

Chief Silverii is recruiting you for a first-in-a-lifetime mission. This highly decorated police veteran of over 24 years, spent 16 of those working in the SOG of undercover narcotics and SWAT. His sacrifices made in the SOG uniquely allows him access where no other researcher may go; Deep undercover to find officers evolving into the Darker Shades of Blue.
