Hey! I wanted to share with everyone my interview with Detective Crissy Bartley for the ‘Following Dreams” page. She is part of the Richmond Police Departments Bomb Squad. I learned about the robots they use and x-ray equipment. And I got to wear a ninety pound, $20,000 bomb suit. You will love finding out more about Crissy’s career when her interview is posted later this summer.

Detective Crissy Bartley, & Officer Sean Hammett, Bomb Squad Technician
Sean Hammett describes how the robot works. It even has a shotgun attached!
Crissy sets up to x-ray my purse.
Crissy is showing me the x-ray of my purse. I got the all clear!
I'm smiling but the suit was heavy and hot.
With the helmet on it felt like a space suit.
My Dad even got to wear the bomb suit. Now, he really is the bomb!
