Great resource for people interested in police work and the ins and outs

I love listening to this as part of my weekly podcasting binge. I particularly liked the one on hate crimes but I find all of them interesting and informative. I am delighted this podcast has hit the waves.

Fantastic Resource

This is an outstanding resource. Any writer of police procedurals should listen regularly, but the details that come out of this podcast can provide a taste of authenticity to any story where the conflict involves law enforcement. I'm loving this podcast.

Beyond valuable!

This is a MUST of a Writer's Resource - not just for those who write crime thrillers, but for writers in general!
And now, I can really make my romantic suspense novel SING!
