Writers’ Police Academy – August 2018

Writers’ Police Academy in Green Bay, Wisconsin was such fun. My itinerary included Blood Spatter Analysis, Shoot/Don’t Shoot simulator, Tactical Emergency Casualty Care, Behavioral Clues at Crime Scenes, and Fingerprinting. It was cool to meet and hang out with other writers, and learn from them. Also, if you experience an arterial bleed, I can be of assistance!
