This month, the State Preparedness Training Center (SPTC) will host the annual “Excelsior Challenge”, which is a hands-on training event designed to increase coordination among Bomb Squads, Explosive Detection Canine Teams, and Tactical Teams. More than 100 law enforcement personnel from across the State will participate in this event. This year’s Excelsior Challenge will feature scenarios inspired by the current threat environment, including recent terrorist attacks in London, Orlando, and Dallas.

The opportunity is:

  • Integration with Scenario Teams: Each of the seven scenarios at the Excelsior Challenge is led by a small team of 4-6 Instructors, including Bomb Technicians, Explosive Detection Canine Handlers, and Tactical Team Leaders. These instructors are active experts in their fields from local, State, and Federal agencies including the Federal Bureau of Investigation, NYPD, and the NYSP. Students will be integrated with these Scenario Teams to help plan scenarios (to the extent possible in advance) and to actually help run the scenarios during Excelsior.
