Norwich Police attending valuable training here.

Norwich VT Police Department is at New Mexico Tech but only for a week.

Sergeant Frank and Officer Schippert are "having a blast" in New Mexico this week as they attend a week long training: Incident Response to Terrorist Bombings, fully funded by a grant from the Department of Homeland Security.

The IRTB course provides first responders with the knowledge and skills necessary to safely respond to incidents involving explosives. The IRTB course focuses on first responder health and safety by addressing personal protection issues that arise when responding to terror incidents involving commercial and homemade explosive.

Additionally, the course includes information on the recognition of Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs). This information better prepares first responders to safely recognize and respond to terrorist bombing threats.  Photo and pertinent info courtesy of Norwich PD.
