We’re excited to welcome Paul Bishop back to the show! His thirty-five years in the LAPD included being part of the department in times when it experienced both major problems and major changes, so he will share his views on the current crisis in law enforcement and what can be done about it. He’ll also talk about false confessions from the point of view of an experienced interrogator.
A thirty-five year veteran of the Los Angeles Police Department, Paul Bishop’s career has included a three year tour with his department’s Anti-Terrorist Division and over twenty-five years’ experience in the investigation of sex crimes. His Special Assaults Units regularly produced the highest number of detective initiated arrests and highest crime clearance rates in the city. Twice honored as Detective of the Year, Paul also received the Quality and Productivity Commission Award from the City of Los Angeles.
As a nationally recognized interrogator, Paul starred as the lead interrogator and driving force behind the ABC TV reality show Take The Money And Run from producer Jerry Bruckheimer. Based on his expertise in deception detection, he currently conducts interrogation seminars for law enforcement, military, and human resource organizations.
Paul has published twelve novels, including five in his L.A.P.D. Detective Fey Croaker series. He has also written numerous scripts for episodic television and feature films. He currently writes and edits the Fight Card series of hardboiled boxing novels under the pseudonym Jack Tunney. His newest book, written as Paul Bishop, is Lie Catchers — the first in a new series about LAPD interrogators Ray Pagan and “Calamity” Jane Randall.
