Adam Plantinga’s first book, 400 Things Cops Know, received rave reviews from star crime writers such as Lee Child, Edward Conlon and Joseph Wambaugh. It was hailed as "the new bible for crime writers" in The Wall Street Journal.


In his book Police Craft, Plantinga gives his views on police shootings, racial profiling, community relations, and every other aspect of policing. It’s a thought-provoking and revelatory examination of policing in America, as seen by a 17-year veteran sergeant with the San Francisco Police Department. It gives an inside view of the police officer’s job, from handling evidence and conducting interrogations to coping with danger, violence, and death. Not hesitating to confront controversial issues.

Plantinga has also written 13 nonfiction articles on various aspects of police work for the literary magazine The Cresset, published by the Valparaiso University Press. Plantinga lives in the Bay Area with his wife and daughters.


Crime writers will not want to miss Adam’s talk.
