The Sacramento Sheriff Department’s Explosive Ordnance Disposal Team (EOD) is a highly trained team of Sheriff’s Deputies responsible for the safe rendering and disposal of military, commercial and improvised explosives as well as explosive chemicals. EOD technicians conduct post-blast investigations, often completing joint investigations with federal teams. EOD provides explosive ordnance disposal for all of unincorporated Sacramento County as well as the cities of Citrus Heights, Folsom, Elk Grove and Isleton.

EOD technicians play a key role in local and visiting dignitary protection and frequently provide pre-event explosive detection sweeps. The EOD team serves our community by providing critical response and bomb related training for law enforcement as well as safety and awareness programs for schools and businesses. EOD technicians support the Special Enforcement Detail in its efforts to gain quick, effective entrance into fortified structures through the use of explosive breaching techniques as well as providing robotic operations in tactical environments.

If you come across a suspected explosive device, DO NOT TOUCH IT OR MOVE IT. Call 911 and let the bomb squad safely handle the situation.
