"1 Adam 12, 1 Adam 12, unknown trouble, 714 Dragnet Drive. Meet the PR (person reporting) in front of the location."

Hi, I'm Kathy Bennett, and welcome to my website.


I worked for the LAPD for 29 years. Eight of those years were as civilian employee. The other 21 years were as a sworn police officer.

I take my second career as a mystery/suspense writer seriously. I work hard to bring you thrilling, entertaining, and suspenseful crime novels. I draw on my experiences from working the streets, and life itself, to bring you authentic crime while telling arresting stories.

While you're here, take time to look around…

Oh, and the reference to Adam 12 and Dragnet at the top of the page? That's a 'tip of my hat' to the two television shows that inspired me to become a cop. On Dragnet, 714 was the number on Sergeant Joe Friday's badge





June Crime Prevention Tip of the Month: 

Many schools close in June for the summer. Historically, burglaries and vandalisms increase at schools during the summer months. If you live near a school, and see suspicious activity at the school, don't hesitate to notify the police. Officers would much rather dissuade trespassers to leave than investigate a a costly burglary or vandalism.
