Searching the Scene One of the most effective methods of conducting a search for bomb components and debris is with the grid search pattern. The number in each grid will correspond to the evidence specimen number on the evidence recovery log. Documenting The plotting of a grid search pattern on a diagram provides a visual representation of where specific items of evidence were located before being transferred to inventory. In structure bombings, this grid may extend to the outside of the target room/area and encompass adjoining rooms and even outside of the structure itself. 6 Documenting IED Improvised Explosive Device A report with a detailed narrative is mandatory.

IED The fragmented remains of a plastic pipe that contained 8 ounces of dynamite. 7 IED Fragmented propane cylinder that was not used as a container for an explosive charge. Based upon it being bent inward, the explosive forces originated from outside the cylinder. IED Batteries: one in the original condition, one whose fragmented components were recovered following use in an IED, and a disassembled battery exhibiting some of the typical 1.5-V battery components. IED IED Fragmented plastic container that contained 4 ounces of emulsion explosives. Note the different colors of plastic that were recovered and that helped establish an association with an intact container.

It is sometimes difficult to determine the origin of the black plastic as other t...
