After twelve months of planning, tons of hard work, lots of fun, and three wonderful days of playing cops and robbers, it all boiled down to the stroke of pen. On Thursday, Denene and I traveled to Guilford Technical Community College to present the Writers’ Police Academy’s donation to the Criminal Justice Foundation. So, thanks to the hard work and generosity of everyone involved, we are pleased to announce that our donation for 2011 was…
A whopping $10,000.00!
That’s right, I said Ten Thousand Dollars!
Eric Holloman, the department chair for the GTCC public safety department, accepts the WPA’s $10,000.00 donation. The money is used for training and supplies above and beyond the department’s extremely limited budget.

Reflections of 2011…
See you in 2012 for an all new, even more exciting program, including the fabulous Lee Child, our 2012 keynote speaker!
