Hidden explosives and crude bombs loaded with bbs to maximize terror have the New York metro area on edge. While the works of bomb squads are drawing great attention in the New York/New Jersey area, some of their colleagues are meeting in Springfield. The International Association of Bomb Technicians & Investigators conference has kicked off in Springfield. The Secretary of State's Police has been known for its bomb squad ever since the unit was formed in the mid 70s. Secretary of State Police Director Sydney Roberts continues to be impressed with the work of the squad.
Police and first responders from around the Midwest and even some from outside the US are taking part in the conference.
