Sargei “Sarge” Hoteko served 27 years in various law enforcement capacities.  After his military service in the United States Army he joined the Lake Forest Police Department (Illinois).  Then, in 1975, he joined the United States Customs Service.  Ultimately, he retired as Chief Inspector for Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport.  Sarge Hoteko is the author of two books: On The Fringe Of History: A riveting behind-the-scenes look at the war on drugs and terrorism from a "fed" who fought the fight and Hoteko's Laws: A Manager's Guide to Success, Survival and Sanity in the Federal Government.

 

According to the book description of On The Fringe Of History, it “is Chief Inspector Sarge Hoteko's personal memoir, including his experiences as a narcotic interdiction and antiterrorism instructor in 16 countries around the globe. Hoteko reveals the shocking, rampant and systematic corruption within many of those governments, especially; Pakistan, Mexico, Bolivia and Nigeria--the most corrupt nation on earth.

 

He also depicts how overzealous internal affairs investigators bungled two major cases in Chicago that devastated innocent lives. As Hoteko stated, "Who watches the watchdogs?" He reveals how a biased press unjustly slammed Customs over the O'Hare Airport female search controversy. One NBC investigative reporter stated, "It is better to let a person go rather than to do the strip search. It's better to let the pound of heroin go out on the street. On The Fringe of History follows one American's fascinating career around the world and captures the sheer patriotic joy he experienced while serving his country.”
