Guy Olivieri:

Writers Police Academy Abridged

The morning program is an exceptionally unique experience for writers to enhance their understanding of all aspects of law enforcement, crime scene procedures, and forensics with crime scene and fingerprint expert retired Detective Guy T. Olivieri.

This workshop will help participants understand crime scene investigation procedures, and will enable writers to tell their crime and mystery stories accurately and with greater detail. We will discover how bad television has made for bad understanding of law. From demonstrations, to case studies, to Q&A, this will be an educational and entertaining experience. The Q&A will allow writers’ access to an expert that can help move their stories forward.

GLVWG Host is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.

Crime Scene Investigation in a Nutshell

Part two will feature more crime scene methods and studies such as a brief look at blood stain patterns, time of death, and one of Guy’s other expertise, Forensic Entomology (the study of how insects help solve crimes). Last, we will put out our new knowledge to the test by solving a homicide/mystery meticulously detailed in a dollhouse diorama form by Francis Glessner Lee. Guy will present rare photos of one (or maybe two) of FGL’s miniature crime scenes for the class to solve.
