My guest on today’s show is George Cramer, an enrolled descendant of the Karuk Tribe of California.
George began his forty-year investigative career in law enforcement and then moved into private and corporate investigations. He attended the Institute of American Indian Arts, earning his MFA-Creative Writing.
As a corporate and private investigator, Mr. Cramer conducted thousands of investigations throughout the Americas and Asia. He kept his investigative skills honed by volunteering as a Missing Persons investigator at a California Police Department.
In today’s episode we discuss:
· How George got interested in law enforcement.
· What it was like to be a police officer in 1968.
· Training and equipment for a street cop back in the late 1960s.
· Doing undercover drug buys with members of the Hell’s Angles Motorcycle Gang.
· Becoming a private investigator.
· Beginning his writing career and his M.F.A. at age 68.
All of this and more on today’s episode of the Cops and Writers podcast.
