You never want to call them out. It is great to have one when you need it.
The tricky part is knowing when to call them.
The ideal is to bring them in when the threat is imminent. High-risk locations err to the side of caution, like airports, embassies and other political or populated areas. This makes them, vulnerable to hoaxes sure, but the cost of calling it wrong is high enough to justify the costs.

Places where things are going well, your business and product rage, your customer relationships, your union relations or your health. These places might be so low on the radar that we don’t even consider the possibility of explosive devices.
