What is Search?
Search is defined by the Military and police as: “The management and application of systematic procedures and appropriate detection equipment to locate specified targets”.
These specified targets can include terrorist items such as Improvised Explosive Devices (IED’s), weapons and component parts, criminal items such as drugs, stolen goods and other contraband or even people.
As well as locating targets, Search can also be used as a risk management tool or to confirm the absence of such items as IED’s from an area or weapons from a person.
