Of Counsel David Delaney Researches How To Reduce Attacks By Homemade Explosives

FH+H Of Counsel David Delaney recently served on the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine and helped publish a report outlining ways to reduce the threat of homemade explosives.

The report, which was requested by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, focuses on the retail sale of explosive chemicals.

"This National Academies committee work should help the executive branch and Congress consider a variety of strategies that can meaningfully and cost effectively reduce risks," Mr. Delaney said.

The committee spent the past year gathering data, holding meetings, and taking questions from the public related to explosives and chemicals.

"Committee members brought a tremendous diversity of academic, government, and private sector experience to deliberations," Mr. Delaney said. "Experts provided valuable information on many issues, including behavioral decision making, internet sales, chemicals and explosives, and domestic and foreign threat actors."
