Bomb Squad

The Sheriff’s Police Bomb Squad is the only full-time explosives detection and recovery unit available to suburban and Federal agencies, responding to calls from Cook, DeKalb, Grundy, Kankakee, Lake, McHenry and Will Counties.  All members of the Bomb Squad have been deputized by the U.S. Marshals Service, enabling them to cross geographical borders to assist agencies outside their primary jurisdiction when requested.

Members of the Bomb Squad complete eight weeks of intense training at the United States Army’s Hazardous Devices School in Redstone Arsenal in Huntsville, Alabama.  Technicians are mandated to re-certify every three years to maintain their credentials.
