Check out Frank Serpico. A movie (Serpico) was made about his career (R de Niro played him) and there is a wonderful bio written by Peter Maas, who is as good a writer as Serpico was a cop.

Donnie Brasco. / Great Book, great movie; about an undercover FBI agent.

Al Pacino played Serpico, I think…...

@Pattyb; you are absolutely correct. I was rushing – always a mistake. Thanks for catching my mistake.

there is an old movie called “Rush” its about 2 undercover cops trying to bust drug lords. Can’t say it shows cops in the best light, but might give u an idea of what they could face….

Serpico is the one that comes to my mind too.
