It is, unfortunately, an all too common occurrence that Public Safety Bomb Technicians (PSBT) are rebuffed in their efforts to obtain training and equipment needed to safely accomplish their mission due to lack of available funding. This is precisely why the Department of Homeland Security’s preparedness grants were created. This money is available to provide domestic and international counter-terrorism training to PSBTs, and our subject matter expert, Mike Clayton, can provide you with more information on proposal submission for federal funding for counter-terrorism training. As the State Bomb Squad Commander and certified Tactical Bomb Technician, Mike understands the value of specialized training and equipment and of the funding required to make them both happen. From 2007 to 2019, he secured in the area of $10 million utilizing DHS preparedness grants. This money was used to provide annual training and equipment to every bomb technician across the state of Georgia.
