Sniffer dogs services
Our dogs make no contact with the items they scan. If explosives are detected, the dog will indicate to the handler, in such event, the handler will take control of the situation to ensure the correct protocols are followed.
Shield Facilities provide Explosive Detection Dog teams to seek out explosive devices and substances. Our explosive detection dogs are trained to indicate the presence of substances such as
- Nitro Glycerine
- HME derivatives.
The explosive Detection Service helps to maintain a safe environment. The teams are uniformed and operate overtly, also acting as a deterrent. For a more discrete services, we can operate out of uniform and in a plain vehicle.
Our Explosive Detection Dogs can be trained to detect odour related to common explosives, in many different environments. Our dogs are trained to locate target scents on persons, in vehicles, concealed in bags or buildings and are comprisable to teams operating in the public sector. The dogs are well trained to UK and European standards and the handlers are self motivated and experienced. We also integrate well with other security personnel during a deployment, which makes for an overall efficient and professional for the client and attending public. A full confidential written report is made available following every deployment, this is sent across to the client should they wish to receive it, we then keep it on file.
In addition to dog handling, all our handlers are trained in explosive awareness, explosive identification, licensing laws, evidence handling, report writing, health and safety, basic canine first aid and conflict management. all our handlers are SIA licensed.
At the end of each task, we debrief with the handler and the client to discus our findings, performance and any learning outcomes or practices that could improve our service in the future. If any learning outcomes are identified, they will be implemented ahead of our next deployment.
Shield Facilities offers an individual, bespoke service with complete confidentiality and discretion assured. Working in partnership with our clients, we provide a solution, which helps ensure the safety of your staff, contractors and guests.
