Brewing Chemistry - The Detroit Bomb Squad

Presented by:
Lt. Matthew Taylor, Officer-in-Charge,
Detroit Police Bomb Squad

The Detroit Police Department Bomb Squad responds not only to bomb threats, but also unattended or suspicious items, suspected military ordnance, and post-blast scenes. The Bomb Squad follows the Federal Bureau of Investigation protocols when faced with these situations. Lt. Taylor has years of experience from also working with the Office of Homeland Security and the Tactical Mobile Unit. He will share stories of some unique cases and explain how science is used in order for his team to respond safely. He will also provide information for those who are interested in pursuing a career as a bomb technician, forensic scientist or an energetic materials chemist.

Join us to learn more about the Bomb Squad and help Brewing Chemistry celebrate its 11th Anniversary!!
