Law enforcement agencies detonate explosives

BEAUMONT - By Justin Hinton, KFDM News

Law enforcement agencies from across the region gathered Tuesday afternoon at the Beaumont landfill for a training on explosives.

This is the first one weve had in 15 or 20 years. Its been a while, and a lot of things have changed since then, Chief Jimmy Singletary with the Beaumont Police Department said.

His department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) teamed up together to host the training.

Tuesday afternoon was spent on the field, rather than the classroom, to learn what different explosives sound and look like.

Criminals are only limited by their imagination, so these types of devices are constantly being upgraded, changed to circumvent the law, said Franceska Perot with the ATF.

Chief Singletary says his department would still need to call the ATF if explosives are discovered in his coverage area, but having this training helps prepare his agents.

More and more explosives are being used domestically and some of our foreign assets overseas. Its good for our local law enforcement to have a good working knowledge of the explosives especially in a post-blast investigation, he said.
