The Paducah Police Department modeled its new bomb suits Wednesday for John Holiday (right), executive director of the Kentucky Department of Homeland Security, which provided more than $114,000 in grants to pay for the suits and other equipment. Shown with Holiday (from left) are Sgt. Matt Hopp and Assistant Chief Anthony Copeland. The new equipment replaced expired armor for the four members of the Paducah bomb squad, which covers 13 counties in western Kentucky.
