We here at The Graveyard Shift have been toying with the idea of teaching an online course in Police Procedure and Crime Scene Investigation. I’m curious if there’d be any interest before I start this massive ball rolling. Some of the classes that could be available are:
Interview and Interrogation
How To Think Like A Detective
Police: What They Do and Why
DNA: From Collection Through Testing: It’s Not A Perfect Science
Weapons Retention and Disarming
Undercover Investigations: What’s It’s Like To Live Under An Assumed Identity
Crime Scene Investigations
Autopsy and Embalming
Defensive Tactics For Writers
I’m also going to be teaching a Writers Police Academy at the gym in my house beginning in January. Anyone in the New England area who’s interested in attending please contact me. I need a virtual show of hands. We’ll be holding an open house in the near future (complete with refreshments) where I’ll be discussing the available classes. I’ll also be giving a presentation that’s an overview of the course. This will be a one of a kind course, not the usual writers conference class. I’ll also be offering hands-on classes in subjects such as, crime scene fingerprinting, evidence collection and preservation, and arrest techniques.
I’m anxious to hear your thoughts, suggestions, and ideas.
