Explosive detection dogs

Improvised explosive devices (IEDs) contain at least one of the twelve basic components of explosives. The Twickelerveld explosive detection dogs are trained and certified to recognize and safely locate these basic materials.

The explosive detection dogs may be used for:

  • preventive searches for improvised explosive devices ("bombchecks");
  • searches in response to bomb threats;
  • specific searches for fireworks, firearms and / or ammunition;
  • cargo inspections.

The Twickelerveld dog handlers are certified bomb investigators and air cargo inspectors. Therefore they are aware of procedures and regulations regarding searches for improvised explosive devices, fireworks and firearms.
