Beaumont Police Department Sponsoring Public Seminar September 24, 2014

On September 24, 2013 at noon, the Beaumont Police Department and ATF are sponsoring a brief public seminar regarding Improvised Explosive Device (IED) Recognition and Bomb Threat Management. This session will be held at Ford Park.  Then at 3PM, following the classroom portion of the course, there will be a live explosive demonstration, providing the opportunity for the participants to see and feel the signature effects of various commercial and military explosives. This will be conducted at the City of Beaumont Landfill, located a short distance away at 4900 Lafin Rd/ off Fannett Hwy.

With the number of bomb threats increasing as well as the potentiality for explosions, it benefits your organization and your employees to be able to identify suspicious packages and know recommended procedures for dealing with bomb threats. It is hoped that Businesses, Industry, government employees and officials, as well as Media take the time to attend. This is a FREE seminar and demonstration, and Jefferson County is throwing in Cookies and Coffee.

Again, the event will start at 12PM at Ford Park, 5115 IH10 S, and then move to the Beaumont Landfill, 5895 Lafin Dr at 3 PM. The demonstration should be concluded before 5 PM. No RSVP is required. Please help get the word out to applicable officials and try to solicit key staff to attend.
