The Bomb Squad gives a one-day training session to every SJPD Academy class. The recruits learn what explosives look like and how they work. Then, they watch a demonstration of explosives out at the SJPD bomb range. Bomb Squad Supervisor Sergeant Robert Lang stresses the importance of the training, "From start to finish, we want the recruits to be able to identify what's dangerous and protect themselves and the public."
The SJPD Bomb Squad has evolved over the years to use new strategies and the latest technologies to deal with the sophistication of modern terrorists. The squad has a large selection of equipment including remote-controlled bomb robots. These automatons are sent into hazardous situations whenever possible to protect human lives.
