Secure-X Asia 2017 in conjunction with Milipol-Asia 2017 (5th Apr)
Given the prevalent threat of terrorist attacks around the world, security personnels and investigators need to be equipped with knowledge and skills on ways to detect, identify and respond to security threats. Explosive Devices are commonly encountered in terrorism related cases. There is a trend towards the use of improvised explosive devices (IEDs) as the materials are more readily available, and easier to avoid detection. Identification of IEDs and homemade explosives (HMEs), safety precautions, techniques for on-site screening of suspicious chemicals, and evidence collection will be discussed.
