Abstract:

"This expanded new edition continues to demonstrate that all law enforcement and security officers should have a working knowledge of bombs, explosives, suspicious devices, chemical-biological-radiological incidents and other threats for their own protection. A lack of this working knowledge can be a contributing factor to injury, death, or the inability to mitigate these incidents. The text points out the critical steps that should be taken by the first arriving personnel in order to allow the general law enforcement and security practitioner to respond to such incidents."--Back cover.
