Explosives Detection

Explosives Detection

In response to the ever-increasing threat of terrorism, ICTS provides explosives search services (sniffer dogs) through the deployment of highly trained handlers and their dogs. This type of deployment is a trusted and proven method of locating explosives in a wide range of environments, from vehicle and cargo screening to systematic building searches. 

The presence of our teams provides a high-profile deterrent, delivering reassurance to the general public, especially in times of heightened security.

Drugs Detection

Drugs Detection

The deployment of drug detection dogs, both proactive (buildings, areas and vehicles) and passive (for screening of people) offers clients a high-profile solution to drug misuse. 

ICTS works in partnership with educational establishments, event organisers, drug action teams, town centre safety managers, HR Departments and Police authorities.
