The Manteca PD Bomb Squad consists of two sergeants and two trainees. The unit is responsible for responding to and investigating suspicious packages, disposal of modified military ordnance, rendering safe improvised explosive or incendiary 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 taught by the FBI at Redstone Arsenal in Huntsville, Alabama. This training is provided by the FBI free of charge to participating agencies and certifies the Hazardous Device 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, robotic use and maintenance.
The MPD Bomb Squad is a member of the Stockton-Manteca Regional Bomb Squad. This regional bomb squad covers the incorporated areas of Stockton, Manteca, Ripon and Escalon.
