Search Techniques - Inside.
a. Start the search of the inside in the basement and work toward the
top floor. If a separate public area search team is organized, use building
custodial personnel on the team, because they are most familiar with the
area to be searched.
Examples would include reception rooms, lobbies,
elevators, stairs, custodial closets, and rest rooms. As search teams move
throughout the building, mark each area as it is searched.
One method of
indicating a "search-completed" area is to tie a piece of string or crepe
paper across the door opening.
b. When conducting a detailed room search be certain to follow these
(1) Move into the room, stand with eyes closed, and listen.
clockwork timing devices can be detected without special equipment.
(2) Divide the room into equal parts according to the number of
objects to be searched, not the size of the room.
