Art Adkins Biography

Art Adkins is currently a lieutenant with the Gainesville Police Department, Gainesville, Florida. Art started his law enforcement career in 1980 on the Ft. Lauderdale Police Department, before becoming a member of the Los Angeles Police Department in 1982. In 1993, Art moved to Gainesville, Florida, his hometown, to raise his two sons.

Art explores the challenges facing modern law enforcement as this century begins. Shrinking budgets and Information Led Policing have transformed the law enforcement frontier. Art conducts classes for the Florida Attorney Generals Office on Innovative Strategies in Crime Prevention. A crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) Practitioner, Art has instituted several cutting edge techniques adopted by the Gainesville Police Department that are currently being copied by agencies across America. By adopting the private business model to the public sector, Art has paved the way for agencies to do more with less, enhance communication and reduce crime.

His list of accomplishments include the streamlining of the crime data gathering process; a method to place all police professionals within an agency on the same page; introducing crime prevention strategies to line officers and field training officers; and creating a leadership model aimed specifically at mid-level managers.

In addition to his law enforcement career, Art has written two novels, The Oasis Project and Power Grid. Though fiction, his work has a tangible connection to issues confronting us and mysteries from our past. Relying on his law enforcement background, he weaves these elements into his work.

In 2008, he won Detective Suspense of the Year from His first novel, it also garnered rave reviews from Midwest Book Review, Page One Lit, and Linda Fasulo, WGCU, Southwest Florida NPR. He has been lauded for the environmental angle of his work.

Power Grid, the sequel to The Oasis Project, explores the secrets of Stonehenge, the pyramids and other ancient wonders. He recently completed the third in the Lockwood series, Mind Walkers. He resides in the Hawthorne area with his girlfriend and is finishing his law enforcement career with the Gainesville Police Department. Art conducts lectures on the creative writing process, how to develop a mystery, and what lies in a name for a protagonist.
