CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) — Best-selling crime author Patricia Cornwell has treated some Massachusetts detectives to crime-scene management training.
Cambridge police officials say the weeklong training at the city’s public safety facility included more than 20 local detectives.
Instructors came from the National Forensic Academy in Knoxville, Tenn.
Cornwell’s latest crime novel, ‘‘The Bone Bed,’’ came out in October.
It marks the 20th book featuring Cornwell protagonist Kay Scarpetta.
Cornwell also gave Cambridge’s police commissioner a signed copy of the book, which she set in Cambridge.
The author said in a statement she felt privileged to give back to law enforcement officials who have helped her.
