Published: April 19, 2013

TULSA, Okla. (AP) — Oklahoma State University in Tulsa has named a new director of training for its Center for Improvised Explosives Research and Training.

John Frucci III will serve as the center's training director. He is a former bomb squad commander from Newark, N.J., and has 20 years of experience in law enforcement.

The center focuses on research, testing and training and is part of the OSU School of Forensic Sciences in Tulsa. The school's director, Robert Allen, says Frucci has a “wealth of knowledge” about handling and dismantling explosive devices.

Frucci began his career in 1993 in the Essex County Sheriff's Office in Newark and later served as commander of the county's bomb squad. He now works as an adjunct professor in the Professional Security Studies Department at New Jersey City University.
