Hundreds of law enforcement officers from across the state are in Raleigh to learn how to prevent terrorist explosions in North Carolina.

The State Bureau of Investigation is holding the bomb prevention training as part of a national effort to better train local police.

At the SBI Crime Lab on Tryon Road, Homeland Security officials are teaming up with the Wake County Sheriff's Office and security specialists from the private sector for two days of training.

The Bombing Awareness and Prevention Training session is part a national effort that also includes TRIPwire, the Technical Response for Incident Prevention, an online information-sharing network for bomb technicians and law enforcement sponsored by the Department of Homeland Security. The network helps agencies anticipate, identify and prevent bombing incidents.

Close to 200 North Carolina law enforcement officers are expected to take part in the training.
