K-9 Services

Global Risk K-9 Explosive Detection Service include highly trained detection dogs and qualified handlers. These teams conduct searches for a variety of explosive materials near building exteriors, parking lots, office areas, vehicles, packages, and people in and around our client’s facilities.  They also provide a strong visible and psychological deterrent against criminal and terrorist threats. The teams are available to assist our clients 24/7.

Strategic and Preventive Tactics

Global Risk K-9 Detection teams play a critical role in providing comprehensive preventive security measures by supporting strategic explosive detection activities.  They also provide immediate and specialised response to bomb threats and unattended packages or other such dangerous items. Most often, these detection activities allow the Global Risk K-9 Detection teams to detect or quickly rule out the presence of dangerous materials and allow the business of our clients to continue with minimal or no interruption.

Global Risk K-9 Detection Service has a Personnel Screening Detection (PSD) program.  PSD canines are specially trained to detect explosives carried by people or in moving containers, such as luggage or backpacks.

History and Training

Global Risk K-9 Detection Service responsibilities require the highest levels of expertise and professionalism and, as such, the selected handlers and canines are matched early in the training process and are required to complete a 10-week training course at our UK partners Canine Academy.  After successful completion of the training program, the handlers and their canine partners graduate from the course as a certified EDD handler.

In addition to the training they receive at our UK Canine Academy, the Global Risk K-9 Detection teams are required to maintain proficiency throughout the year and recertify annually.  The EDD teams participate in numerous training exercises throughout the year.
