LAREDO, Tx.- In light of the bloody drug war in our sister city and all throughout Mexico, local law enforcement agencies team up to ensure our community is safe.

As the drug war across the border continues to plague Nuevo Laredo local law officials said criminals are beginning to get more creative in their deadly executions.

"We have seen a new level of explosive grade material being used in different types of events and that concerns me as chief," said Laredo Police Department Chief Carlos Maldonado.

As a proactive approach in the Gateway City, the Laredo Police Department bomb squad and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives held an explosives demonstration.

"We're very concerned," said Frank Arredondo with Laredo ATF. "That's exactly why we're putting this course on. Just in case something like that does happen in the U.S.

we'll be ready for it." The post blast training gives local investigators a first hand look at the various types of explosives being used. "These are the types of explosives that are readily accessible to the commercial means," said Arredondo.

Most of the explosives the criminals use are those you find in mining operations. Each explosive being detonated releases a different color of smoke and in some instances a different sound.

Though instability is being seen in Mexico, Chief Maldonado said through these types of demonstrations his department and other law enforcement agencies are well prepared should a tragic incident strike in the Gateway City.

"So prevention is the key to anything," added Maldonado. "We need to be educated and aware."
