Article: Homemade Explosives (HME) Recognition Guide

23 Dec 2014

Instructions for Recognition Guide Use:

This recognition guide contains images of HME-related materials and manufacturing components and provides a list of common indicators (observables) that when found, indicate a high probability of HME-related activity.

If any observables are present at a given location, persons associated with the area should be questioned and potentially detained.

Refer to this material if something looks suspicious, out of place, or out of character.

Probability of HME production activity increases when one or more component and / or indicator is found at the same location.
