The Easton Police Department and Detective Kent Lyman have received recognition from the F.B.I. New Haven Field Office regarding a regional training session held last year.  Lyman coordinated the training with F.B.I. Agents and Explosives Technicians.  Easton Police say the training session provided valuable information for First Responders regarding the hazards of commercial explosives and the threats posed by improvised/homemade explosives.  100 First Responders attended classroom instruction and an outdoor exercise, which included the detonation of various devices.  The plaque was presented to Easton Police Chief Richard Doyle by Assistant Special Agent in Charge Robert Fuller on Tuesday.
