Transcript of Search a Vehicle for Explosive Devices or Prohibited Items a
You are at the vehicle search lane at an installation access control point. You are given a search mirror, a flashlight, a reflective vest, the local standing operating procedure (SOP), and a directive to search an identified vehicle for suspected explosive devices or prohibited items.
Search the undercarriage and the exterior and interior of a vehicle, and find any explosive devices or prohibited items present.
1. Stop the vehicle using hand-and-arm signals.
2. Direct the driver to turn off the engine and apply the parking break.
3. Interview the driver and vehicle occupants.
A. Identify yourself to driver and vehicle occupants.
B. Inform the driver that the vehicle must be searched as a condition for entry onto the installation.
C. Identify each occupant by physically taking possession of and looking at the military or department of defense (DOD) identification (ID) card, state drivers license, or another form of a state or federal government-issued photo ID and comparing the photo to the person. NOTE: Notify your supervisor and the military police if you feel that the photo does not match the person being identified or that the ID has been altered.
D. Request to see the following documentation:
1. Vehicle Registration
2. Proof of vehicle insurance
NOTE: Notify your supervisor and the military police if you feel that the documentation you are being shown is not valid.
4. Direct the occupants to exit the vehicle.
A. Direct the driver to open all interior compartment doors, the hood, the trunk, and rear doors (if applicable) of the vehicle, while maintaining constant observation.
B. Direct the occupants to move to a designated safe area (about five meters from the vehicle and/or out of the flow of traffic) where they can be observed.
Search a Vehicle for Explosive Devices or Prohibited Items at an Installation Access Control Point
Always position yourself so that you are highly visible to traffic with good approach sight distance, and wear reflective vests so that the vehicle driver can see you easily. Never step into the path of an approaching vehicle to direct movement or to stop the vehicle.
E. Determine the specific reason why the driver and occupants need access to the installation by asking questions such as ---
1. Where are you going?
2. Who are you going to meet?
3. Do you drive this vehicle most of the time?
4. Would there be any contraband or prohibited items in this vehicle?
5. Has this vehicle had any repairs recently? If so, what?
F. Maintain eye contact with the driver throughout the interview and report suspicious behavior to the supervisor.
G. Notify the supervisor and military police if the driver appears impaired from the use of alcohol or drugs or if any suspected prohibited items are in plain view during the interview.
5. Search the undercarriage of the vehicle.
A. Use a flashlight and a mirror to carefully inspect under the vehicle.
B. Check for indicators such as new frame welds; items taped or attached to the frame; an unusual looking muffler; a fresh undercoating; and signs of recent installation of components such as fuel tank, muffler, or other items.
6. Search the exterior of the vehicle.
A. Check for general indicators of explosive devices or prohibited items while searching the exterior of the vehicle. Check for the following:
1. Anything unusual in factory built compartments.
2. New or shiny bolts and/or screws.
3. Unusual scratches, possibly made by screwdrivers, wrenches, or similar tools.
4. Signs of tampering, such as broken parts or bent sheet metal.
5. Unusually clean or dirty components and areas.
6. Wire and tape stored in the vehicle.
7. New or broken welds.
8. Unusual fingerprints of grease and/or oil in otherwise clean areas.
9. Fresh body work (such as fresh fiber glassing and fresh paint).
10. Fresh wiring and electrical tape.
11. New caulking.
12. A missing or altered vehicle identification number.
13. False compartments that are not part of the vehicle design.
