The Writers' Police Academy

I'm not sure what it says about me that I'm grinning so hugely at being stuffed in the back of a police car.  I did moan loadly when they shut the doors though because it was HOT!!  Apparently all the scumbags say the say thing :D

The Sheriff's Office has its own Mobile Crime Lab, Underwater Recovery Team, S.E.R.T., Hazardous Devices Team (which made me think of my brother-in-law who clears landmines in the Congo and Sudan for a living), and a really fancy bus which forms a communications hub plus a coffee and loo stop. I did ask the diver guys how the dive persona I know and love from being a Marine Biologist (lots of good time, hard partying people) mixes with the seriousness of being a police diver (the guy just grinned at me :).

My only complaint about North Carolina--like many US States they do not know how to make hot tea. 

I'll blog somemore about WPA this week but I better get on with the day job.
