Following an initial Risk and Threat Assesment, we provide recommendations on measures we consider should be implemented. This might include routine of random sweeps by our specialised unit of explosive detection dogs and bomb dogs.

Planned proactive searches are then carried out on a routine or random basis using our highly trained teams of explosive detection dogs and their handlers.
