    Loved the special. My father was a member of the bomb squad and I remember him bringing my siblings and I to the Precint as kids and walking around the unit. I was so happy when I saw my father’s picture come on the screen on the wall of members, but I do ask a favor. If any one reading this still works there, please fix his name, it’s spelled wrong , it’s G.Welch not Welsh, thank you!!
