GPA Offers Urban Post-Blast Investigations

If you’re interested in explosion investigations, this is the class for you!




The Georgia Police Academy is offering Urban Post-Blast Investigations at the bomb range on Georgia Public Safety Training Center’s main campus in Forsyth, GA, October 24 through October 28. This five-day course will be instructed by explosives experts of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) and Georgia Bureau of Investigations (GBI).


Urban Post-Blast Investigations will provide students with an introduction to explosives and improvised explosive devices. An explosives demonstration will be performed to provide student awareness of destructive potentials. Course topics will include explosive materials investigations, fragmentation analysis, and awareness of secondary devices.


At the end of the course, students complete a practical exercise requiring the post-blast processing of multiple IED crime scenes. Extended outdoor practical exercises are performed during the course. Students should bring professional clothing, appropriate for the outdoor environment, based on anticipated weather conditions.


Prerequisite: Students must be employed by a local, state or federal public safety agency. Non-law enforcement certified applicants with pending felony charges or convictions are prohibited from attendance. The course coordinator may require production of a criminal history record prior to attendance for non-LEO certified applicants.
