The Manteca PD Bomb Squad consists of one Detectives and one Sergeant. The unit is responsible for responding to and examining suspicious packages, disposal of modified military ordnance, rendering safe improvised explosive devices and disposal of explosive or hazardous chemicals and components. The MPD Bomb Squad uses various tools to safely interrogate and disrupt explosive devices (e.g. robots, X-rays, disruptor tools, etc).
Bomb Technicians must complete a rigorous six week training program offered by the FBI and the United States Army at Redstone Arsenal in Huntsville, Alabama. This training is provided by the FBI free of charge to participating agencies and certifies the Technician to safely handle explosive related incidents. Additional training is provided regionally by the ATF and the FBI to include post-blast investigations, advanced explosive disposal training and robotic use and maintenance.
The MPD Bomb Squad is a member of the larger San Joaquin County Metropolitan Bomb Squad. The Metropolitan Bomb Squad consists of Bomb Technicians from Stockton PD, San Joaquin County Sheriff’s Office, Lodi PD and Manteca PD. We respond to explosive related calls throughout San Joaquin County.
