BRIMFIELD TOWNSHIP, Ohio- An outspoken Portage County police chief just might become a best-selling author.

Chief David Oliver of Brimfield Township achieved nationwide attention for his use of one word. The word is 'mopes.' Chief Oliver uses it to describe criminals, people he says "leech off of society."

The chief now has written a book with an appropriate title. It is called, simply, "No Mopes Allowed" and it aims to help people take the right path in life.

The book is an outgrowth of the police department's Facebook page which now has more than 83,000 "likes."

The chief said, "We have a real solid and loyal following on Facebook. People who believe in what we do and I think that is huge nowadays to have something you can believe in."

All proceeds will go to the Chief Oliver Foundation which benefits Brimfield Police Department charities.
