Crime Writers Consultations: "Writer's Homicide School"

NPR this morning played a fun article of interest to writers, readers and viewers of police procedurals: "For Writers, The School Of Hard Cops" (article text, podcast MP3). 

Derek Pacifico, after more than twenty years with the San Bernardino (CA) County Sheriff's Department, runs a company called Crime Writers Consultations, which teaches seminars such as "The Writer's Homicide School."  (They also offer personal beta chats: "Sign up for 1/2 hour or a full hour of one-on-one phone consultation on police procedures or any law enforcement questions you have that will benefit your script, novel or acting experience.")

Between them and Wikipedia and our friendly neighborhood public libraries, let's get things right! ;-)
