Brick Township police enhance their public safety mission - and bomb scares have fewer chances of succeeding - as Officer John Turrin and his K9 partner Vader complete explosive-detecting training.

The team trained at the New Jersey State Police Academy in Hamilton, specializing in detection of ammunition, incendiary devices and bombs.

Police used a grant from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to cover the costs of obtaining Vader, the training, and the team's vehicle.  Officer Turrin will join the patrol division.
