Writer’s Police Academy – Get Ready!

Website Registration Link Opens Sunday, Feb. 18, at Noon EST
Get Ready To Register…Your Own HIT Parade
High Intensity Training (HIT)
12 Outstanding Options
For our 10th anniversary edition of the Writers’ Police Academy, we are bringing back all of your favorite High Intensity Training  (HIT) options–some with new heart-pounding twists. For example, this year’s Force on Force encounter will require you to wear protective gear as you meet up with armed suspects.
We’re also debuting two offerings–Confined Space Crawl and Car Fire! Battling an Auto Blaze–that are musts for anyone writing firefighter scenes. These two new options let those of you who are brave enough get a feel for what it takes to attempt rescues when the world seems engulfed in fire and smoke.
Be sure to read the descriptions of all 12 HIT courses before you register on Sunday, Feb. 18, as you’ll be asked to list in priority order the courses you most want to take. Last year, we were able to give all attendees one or more of their top choices! Of course, HIT sessions are just one part of the WPA. There are lots of other hands-on options–even BEFORE you check in. Our popular Kooky Cop Carnival runs from 1 to 4 p.m. on Thursday. At the Carnival, you can go from booth to booth to test your law enforcement skills, ranging from handcuffing suspects to dragging a partner to safety.
