About The Writers' Police Academy

A Killer Conference for Writers

Real Police Academy Training

Writers' Police Academy’s unique hands-on training takes place in Green Bay, Wi., at the Public Safety Training Academy of Northeast Wisconsin Technical College (NWTC). Beyond basic certifications, the Academy offers specialized courses including SWAT, Boat Patrol, and Homicide Investigations, to name only a few. The Public Safety Academy/Writers’ Police Academy facilities include a 26-acre closed road course, defensive and arrest tactics rooms, tactical house, jail cells, indoor firing range, forced-entry structure, and a 4-story burn tower.

The 2024 event, Killer Con, offers a unique opportunity for attendees to participate in many of the same hands-on training classes---basic and advanced---taught to homicide and crime scene investigators. This special event takes participants on a detective’s journey, from the discovery of a body and subsequent 911 call, collection and processing of evidence, and the various stages of the investigation, to the apprehension and arrest of a murderer. These incredibly exciting cutting-edge sessions have been typically reserved for investigators and forensics professionals ... until now.

All NWTC academy instructors are Wisconsin Department of Justice certified instructors who teach and provide hands-on, scenario-based training to future and veteran law enforcement officers, correctional officers, and deputies. Many of the NWTC/Writers’ Police Academy (WPA) instructors have achieved the level of Master Instructor Trainer. Together, NWTC and WPA instructors and presenters bring over 400 years of law enforcement experience, from local, state, and federal agencies to policing Native American lands to major cities, and all between.

The Writers’ Police Academy is an event that’s unparalleled; it’s where writers experience the sights, sounds, touch, tastes, and smells that are necessary to breathe life in the realm of make-believe. It’s four days of excitement, thrills, and downright heart-pounding fun.
