Plainview Police Sergeant Jeff Stalcup and Officer Al Longoria recently completed BMAP – Bomb-making Material Awareness Program training in Anniston, Alabama through the Center for Domestic Preparedness (CDP). The program is operated by the United States Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency.

The week long training provided information on how to find precursor products for bombs, where they are purchased and how to be aware of potential buyers. The training will not only benefit the police department, but they will be sharing their knowledge with the community as well.

“We are very excited to bring this training to our community,” says Sergeant Stalcup. “The training will assist businesses with awareness of the products and actions of those who may be looking to make a bomb or other explosive devices.”     

Training will begin with Plainview Police Officers and Dispatch Staff and then it will be offered to the public. The training will last approximately an hour and is for all employees.

“Teaching those on the front lines what to look for is very important,” says Officer Longoria. “We can’t have eyes and ears everywhere so help from the community to head off potential explosives is crucial.”

For more information, contact Sergeant Stalcup at 296-1190 or jstalcup@plainviewtx.org or Al Longoria at 296-1185 or alongoria@plainviewtx.org.
