  • Camden County, NJ (map)

The Counter Terrorism Operational Support (CTOS), a member of the National Domestic Preparedness Consortium (NDPC), will be instructing the DHS approved training course titled, "Secondary Screener/Personal Radiation Isotopic Identifier Device (SS/RIID)" (PER-245).

COST: None, but please preregister as seating is limited.


The Secondary Screener/RIID Course (SS/RIID) enables law enforcement, fire service, and other response disciplines, assigned to radiation detection secondary screener duties employing a Radiation Isotope Identifier Device (RIID) to detect radiation, verify radiation alarms, localize the source of radiation, identify radioactive material, and assess the status of the detected radioactive material. 

The officer will be trained to employ the RIID to detect radiation in or on people, vehicles, packages, and/or facilities. Additionally, the officer will be trained to obtain technical assessment and adjudication assistance from Federal, State, and/or Local reach back organizations. A variety of small quantity sealed radioactive sources are used in SS/RIID participant activities and practical exercises. These sources are intended to simulate the types of radioactive material that the secondary screener may encounter in the public domain.


Homeland Security Professionals, Law Enforcement, Fire Service, and Hazmat Technicians.
