The Protective Force (PF) Explosives Detection Team (EDT) program exists to detect and thereby deter the introduction of explosives devices into the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Headquarters (HQ) facilities. This critical program uses a graded security systems approach to address potential explosive threats deemed to be credible as determined by a Security Risk Assessment (SRA) of covered facilities. Program elements will be developed and implemented as required to address applicable threat conditions as they develop or change over the course of time.
Explosive threats include both actual physical attempts to introduce an explosive device and communicated threats such as bomb threats to the facilities. Bomb threats cause significant disruption to DOE operations and pose an unacceptable danger to government employees, contractor employees, and visitors and therefore should be resolved as quickly and orderly as possible.
Explosive detection team will be deployed to assist emergency response management to search and clear areas, vehicles, and items determined to be potential explosive threats. EDTs are often utilized to clear designated meeting locations, venues, and adjacent facilities prior to the arrival of certain dignitaries as determined by the Secretary of Energy or their designee. EDTs are a proven reliable resource to detect explosives. Visible deployment of highly trained explosives detection canine teams in view of the public is also a proven deterrent to potential terrorist actions directed towards DOE HQ and provides a timely and mobile response to support its facilities during emergency events.
