An author has thanked Wiltshire 999s for providing ‘invaluable’ advice on local policing for his new book, a psychological thriller called Forget My Name.
J. S. Monroe, who lives near Marlborough, contacted founder Daniel Jae Webb – who has worked as a journalist in Swindon since 2011 – as part of his research for a firearms scene in the book.
Daniel was thanked in the book’s acknowledgements alongside Detective Superintendent Jeremy Carter of Wiltshire Police and Inspector Chris Ward of Thames Valley Police, who also provided information on policing and firearms deployment in the area.
J. S. Monroe said: “Wiltshire 999s proved an invaluable research tool for me when I was writing Forget My Name, a psychological thriller set in a rural Wiltshire village.
“It runs up-to-the minute, breaking stories on the emergency services’ activity across the county, with on-the-ground reporting and excellent photos. It’s also been fantastic to be able to pick the brains of the newsdesk about specific local policing issues, such as armed response units.
“I’ve been telling fellow crime writers about the site and have no doubt that it will become essential reading for them and a source of reliable knowledge for anyone who wants to know more about Wiltshire’s emergency services.”
