For approximately forty years, Jim Simone patrolled Cleveland's second District, a drug-plagued zone with one of many maximum violent crime premiums within the U.S. Nicknamed "Supercop," Simone generated headlines and public curiosity on a scale now not obvious given that Eliot Ness sought for Cleveland's "Torso assassin" within the 1930s.

Simone entered police paintings after serving in Vietnam with the a hundred and first Airborne, the place he earned bronze stars and crimson hearts. As a cop, he by no means shied from probability. He used to be fascinated about a variety of gun battles, and killed 5 humans within the line of responsibility (all governed justifiable). Notoriously equitable as a cop, Simone used to be extra attracted to doing the fitting factor than honoring the "blue code." 
Badge 387 recounts the courageous exploits that earned Simone countless numbers of commendations. In 1983, whereas looking a church basement for a gunman, he used to be shot within the face. regardless of his wounds, he controlled to shoot his assailant, saving himself and different police officers. And in 2009, he plunged right into a frigid river to avoid wasting a lady. Simone was once Cleveland's "Patrolmen of the 12 months" in 1980 and 2009, the one officer within the city's background to obtain the award twice.
