Today I’m going to point you in the direction of some other blogs that will potentially be helpful in your crime writing journey. As well as the weekly Monday blog here, you can look these blogs up and see what you think. Listing these blogs is not an endorsement, but somewhere for you to look and see for yourself if they are of interest to you.
- Mental Health Cop
- I’m interested in ensuring that operational cops with their 8hrs of mental health training, can survive legal contact with this extremely complex business and do their best for patients and vulnerable people. Through this blog, I want to try and get police officers and health / social care staff talking to each other.
- Police Commander
- I write blogs about life and policing – about the extraordinary people I serve alongside and the challenges they face.Nathan Constable
- Nathan ConstableI’m particularly interested in mental health, firearms/taser and the future of policing. These are themes that feature in many of my posts.My writing comes from my own experiences; by sharing the things I see, by questioning what happens around me I hope to bring you a different perspective on policing.
There used to be more police blogging but it seems they’ve stopped for one reason or another. If you know of any more let me know in the comments and I’ll add it to the list.
Matthew Scott’s Legal Comment Argument and Discussion. Comment Awards 2015 Best Independent Blog
Set up by Dan, Sara and Lyndon after a discussion on Twitter concerning inaccurate reports of criminal cases in the press, the lack of public understanding of the criminal justice system and the number of unlawful sentences handed out by the courts.
The UK Human Rights Blog aims to provide a free, comprehensive and balanced legal update service. Our intention is not to campaign on any particular issue, but rather to present both sides of the argument on issues which are often highly controversial.
Inspired to blog by the damage being done to the Criminal Justice System on an almost daily basis.
The Secret Barrister is a junior barrister specialising in criminal law. This blog aims to provide a fly-on-the-wall view of the criminal justice system, and of life at the Criminal Bar in general. By writing anonymously, I hope to spray a few shafts of sunlight onto what is to most an alien and impenetrable world, publicly reflected only in selective media reportage and artistically-licensed tv dramatisation.
These are the personal thoughts of an ordinary probation officer struggling to come to terms with constant change, whilst trying to do a useful job for society. Sadly, change is so often obviously not progress. I am fully aware that my views do not represent official policy of government, my Service or possibly anyone else.

She writes the DI Hannah Robbins series.
When catching a killer isn’t enough…
The naked, battered body of an unidentified teenager is found dumped in an alleyway and post-mortem finds evidence of a harrowing series of events.
Another teenage death with the same MO pushes DI Hannah Robbins and her team in the Nottingham City division Major Crimes Unit, to their limits, and across county borders. In a race against the clock, they attempt to unpick a thick web of lies and deceit to uncover the truth behind the deaths.
But it doesn’t stop there.
Just how far are the team willing to push themselves to save the next girl?
