Explosives and Firearms Detection
In today’s uncertain times, the threat of bombings and shootings looms over the public conscience. Event security is a critical, wise investment for both public and private functions to ensure guest safety. SVK9 is committed to providing a safe and secure environment with a professional, minimally intrusive yet visible presence.
Send a clear message that you are committed to public safety. The safety and security of your guests, volunteers and employees is undoubtedly a top priority. Visible K-9 teams augment existing security measures and will reassure your patrons and staff while deterring potential criminal activity.
Our canine detection teams can assist your team in the prevention and deterrence of criminal activity at your venue. Pre-event sweeps can search for the presence of explosive materials. During the event, K-9 teams provide visual deterrence and identify potential hazards.
The SVK9 handler-dog team will work with your event staff to perform a search of your building, including the following areas:
- Lobbies and common areas
- Seating areas
- Stage and backstage areas
- Employee areas
- Loading dock areas
- Parking lots
- Grounds/surrounding area
What to expect in an explosives search:
Prior to any event we call you to help devise a plan of action upon our arrival and discuss the following:
- Determine the search areas. SVK9 will work with your management team to determine the areas that need to be searched prior to the event.
- Handler’s attire. We will cater to the needs of your business and event. Handlers can arrive in uniform or in plain street clothes.
Upon arrival the handler will meet your designated contact person and will be led on a preliminary tour of the search areas, leaving the canine in the vehicle. After the tour, the handler will discuss the plan of action, answer any questions and have you sign the SVK9 standard agreement before the search begins.
The search. We require your representative accompany the K-9 team throughout the search. If there is more than one K-9 team, we require that you provide an observer for each team. The handler will lead the dog through each room in a designated pattern paying attention to subtle signs that the dog is trained to display. If the dog indicates the presence of explosive material, the proper authorities will be notified.
