Plaster Casts

The Writers' Police Academy was a full service venue.  We learned all about plaster casts, fingerprinting, alternate light sources, police dogs, fires, gravesites/crime scenes, police snipers, jails...

The list goes on and on.

I wouldn't have missed it for the world and I can't wait til next year!!!!!

Thanks again to Lee Lofland and his band of merry volunteers.

Thanks to all the official personnel who gave their time and explained their techniques.

Thanks for all the hands on experience.

Thanks to the police volunteers who drove us around.  (Hi, Bunny!)

And a special thanks to my daughter, Jennifer, who treated me to this academy as an early Christmas gift!


  1. Ooooooh! Merry Christmas, Mom! It was so much fun, wasn't it? And fascinating, too. We got into that fingerprinting class too late to do our own but I remember sitting in the back of the class and you kept pointing at the plaster casts and whispering to me about `em. (I almost thought I'd get in trouble for whispering in class - with my Mom!)
