On Sunday, April 7, from 10 a.m. to noon, author Jacqueline Sheehan and Detective Sergeant Vic Caputo present an overview of what happens when your character calls 911. This introductory program is designed to help writers increase your understanding of law enforcement and forensics, with the overall eye on adding authenticity to your fiction. If the police become part of your narrative (as they must if something goes wrong in the lives of the characters) then it is essential to understand contemporary policing in order to create full characters.
Crime scenes always tell a story, which shows up as physical evidence, but also in behavioral clues. The major purpose of the criminal investigation is to gather information, and Detective Sergeant Vic Caputo will share what might happen in an investigation. We will use several fictional case studies as examples. The workshop will take place at Northampton Center for the Arts.
We will email you more information the week of the workshop!
