HME for K-9 Teams
Throughout the duration of this 1-day course, students will learn to identify basic improvised explosives; the chemical precursors and equipment used in the illicit manufacture of improvised explosives, the hazards associated with each precursor, safe-handling techniques, and general safety precautions. Moreover, students will witness the synthesis of several formulations, be exposed to peroxide-based improvised explosives (TATP & HMTD) formulations along several other types of formulations, and handlers will have the opportunity to imprint their K-9 on all the formulations created during the course. Following imprinting, the formulations will be utilized in practical detection exercises.
