As every law enforcement officer knows, the potential for terrorism, whether against military or civilian targets, has reached an all time high. Every department has potential targets and every officer should know the proper response to bomb threats. Participants will learn step by step how to handle a bomb threat as a first responder and how to identify the most often encountered military and civilian explosives. Emphasis will be placed on the proper search procedures for response to bomb threats in various scenarios.
