A Year Inside the Nation’s Most Exclusive Police Unit

March 19, 2007

We’ve all seen them on the news – Kevlar-clad members of the bomb squad, investigating and exploding suspicious packages. But what is it like to serve on the squad and how do its members deal with the extraordinary pressures they face? Journalist Richard Esposito will take us behind the scenes of the 33-member New York Police Bomb Squad this hour. He’ll join us to discuss the new book he wrote with Ted Gerstein, “BOMB SQUAD: A Year Inside the Nation’s Most Exclusive Police Unit” (Hyperion, 2007).
