TRG bomb response unit senior sergeant Steve Taylor said that he enjoyed the opportunity spent with La Salle students to provide them with insights on how adapting the latest technology helps WA Police create a safer space for their roles.
‘There are currently seven bomb technicians in the WA Bomb Response Unit. When we are not in operations, we are training to maintain our skills.’
National Science Week, held for the 26th time this year, was themed Innovation: Powering Future Industries and featured more than 1000 events around the country from 12 to 20 August.
