K9 Explosive Detection

The most effective and adaptive method for explosives detection

John Clare from Artemis (ISG) Limited informs his clients, “No Venue Should Operate without the mitigation of K-9 Explosive Detection Dog Teams”

The use of K-9 Explosive Detection Dog Teams (EDDT’s) is the most effective and adaptive method for explosives detection at live events, large gatherings and high-volume attendance in open public spaces.

Our teams have completed assignments on some of the world’s greatest known stadiums, arena’s, outdoor public venues and high profile buildings, supporting some of the world’s greatest known global athletes, sports events and personalities, and entertainment “A” listed musical artists as they travel throughout the world, working in conjunction and supporting them with their renowned and globally known promoters, management teams, affiliates, tour managers, production teams, and their touring security providers, and we at Artemis are proud to be on their team supporting them internationally.

Our network is across the globe, and we don’t “crate up” our wonderful dogs and ship them to a location, because we have our partners in place and ready to facilitate our clients’ requirements, fully compliant, insured, competent, discreet and professional at all levels, and managed onsite throughout the assignment by a dedicated team manager from Artemis.
