ONE COP'S JOURNEY tells the true story of a police officer’s battle with post-traumatic stress, alcohol, depression, debilitating loss, and how he moved beyond them through a relationship with Christ.

Keith R. Knotek is a retired American law enforcement official who served over 30 years as a police officer.

Knotek's experiences in law enforcement inspired him to write a non-fiction, autobiographical manuscript entitled From Sorrow to Amazing Grace: One Cop’s Journey. Keith is open about his struggle with PTSD and alcohol, and how he overcame them through his Christian faith and a relationship with God.
