2015 Writers’ Police Academy

Details TBA

Exciting NEWS!

We’ve moved!

The 2015 Writers’ Police Academy will take place at a brand new and much larger law enforcement training facility. And, not only did we move to another academy, we went all out and moved to an entirely different state!

The new academy is one of the premier public safety training centers in the nation, which allows the WPA to provide even more hands-on workshops and training never before offered to writers.

This. Is. BIG!
