Found an unexploded device? Call the police

The police remind us that despite the passage of many years, the earth still conceals many different duds and unexploded ordnance. Such finds must not be touched, much less moved or disarmed. The place where a dangerous object was found must be secured against access by unauthorized persons, especially children. If we are in an open space or in a forest, the place must be marked so that no one enters it and that it can be easily found. The nearest police unit must be notified of the find as soon as possible. Officers will secure the area and notify the sappers. The officers emphasize that the explosive material used in military techniques is completely resistant to all types of weather conditions and, regardless of the date of production, retains its explosive properties.
