2016 Writers’ Police Academy: Pursuits, Morgues, Guns, and…Texas Hold’Em?

WPA 2016: Pursuits, morgues, guns and Texas Hold-em


2016 Writers’ Police Academy

An Exciting Vacation Experience for Writers!

August 11-14, 2016

Northeast Wisconsin Technical College
International Public Safety Training Academy
Green Bay, Wisconsin

Here’s a sneak peek at a few of the all new hands-on workshops – live fire with handguns (Glocks) and rifles, driving patrol cars during a pursuit, PIT (Pursuit Immobilization Technique) where you, the driver of the police pursuit vehicle (yes, a real car on real pavement), will use your car to cause the fleeing vehicle to lose traction and spin, Emergency Vehicle Operation  (you’ll drive a patrol car on a closed course with full lights and siren), drones, blood spatter investigations, ballistics, poisons and toxicology, tours of the Green Bay Correctional Institute (state prison), tours of the local jail, morgue tours, TASER (any volunteers?), and much, much more! You asked for these sessions and we made it happen!

As always, there’s far too much to see and do in a single weekend, so get plenty of rest, wear comfortable shoes, and prepare to be blown away by THE event of a lifetime!
