Scenes From the Writers' Police Academy

Just a few of the many scenes from the Writers' Police Academy.

Ride alongs.

Jail cell searches. 

Blood splatter patterns. 

K-9 teams. 

Bio-terrorism. 

Driving simulator. 

Gunshot victim. 

Shallow grave crime scene. 

Take downs. 

And arrests.


Don't you wish you could have been there?  More next time.


Groaner of the day: A policeman accidentally arrested a judge who had dressed as a convict for a costume party. That cop learned never to book a judge by his cover.

I would love to attend the police academy. I'm sure things have changed since the last time I did ride-alongs and extensive research into procedures, etc.

Groaning... LOL

LOL, that was funny. :)

That police academy sounds like fun research! I'm lucky, my babysitter's hubby is an officer. I get to hear crazy stories all the time.

Diane - Yeah, great trip, terrible pun.

Mary C - Couldn't help yourself, right? I'm going to do a more informational post on the WPA on Friday.

LD Masterson said...

Lydia - Ooo, that's almost as good as having an officer in the family. Instant reference.
