Make Research Fun – Participate in a Citizens’ Police Academy!

Are you a Hampton Roads citizen looking for some hands-on research opportunities with local police departments? By participating in a Citizens’ Police Academy you will learn all about what law enforcement officers do on the job. This is a great opportunity for writers, especially mystery writers, to get a behind-the-scenes look at the daily duties of an officer, learn how arrests are made, and see what the inside of a jail looks like. Here is a list with more information about Citizen Police Academies in Hampton Roads.
