Working at The Speed of Crime
Any effective Crime Gun Intelligence Program relies on the expeditious processing of firearms-related evidence to achieve the goal of intelligence lead, firearms-based investigations. The possible intelligence gained through National Integrated Ballistic Information Network (NIBIN) Leads loses its value the longer it takes to identify the associations and pass that information to investigators. In NIBIN processing, TIMELINESS is crucial. As law enforcement agencies across the country begin to establish their own NIBIN sites outside of the lab environment, many are faced with a recurring concern: how to implement a timely NIBIN process that coincides with the needs for DNA, latent prints, and further firearms processing by forensic scientists and still meets prosecutorial needs for later trials.
Using RapidDNA during Criminal Investigations
From crime scenes and mass casualties to military field forward ops, Rapid DNA is revolutionizing the once complicated and delayed process of human DNA profiles for identification. From an investigative standpoint, hear from Volusia County Sheriff Chitwood and Santa Barbara County Sgt. Morris on how their departments use Rapid DNA to be more efficient and effective in breaking the cycle of crime. Using the same proven processes as a standard DNA lab, Rapid DNA was designed for use in the field by investigators and crime scene technicians with results in less than 2 hours. DNA can now play a role in the early stages of your investigation.
Examining Damaged Bullets with the Quantum 3D Microscope
No 3D microscopy solution would be complete without the ability to examine damaged, deformed, and fragmented bullets. Andrew Boyle makes use of the Quantum 3D Microscope to acquire and compare challenging bullets representative of crime scene evidence.
Forensic Led Policing
The Miami-Dade Police Department’s Forensic Services Bureau has a robust NIBIN program. It strives to meet or exceed MROS standards on the large amount of firearm and casing evidence it receives. As a result, a foundation has been established for downstream intelligence efforts.
Maximizing NIBIN’s Potential in the Courtroom
This webinar will help prosecutors and law enforcement personnel understand how best to use NIBIN evidence in a courtroom. It will cover what NIBIN is and what it isn’t.

The Wichita Crime Gun Intelligence Center: a Unique Law Enforcement University Partnership Approach
When implementing or enhancing an existing regional preventive crime gun strategy, partnerships are critical to the success of any initiative. In October, 2019 the Wichita Crime Gun Intelligence Center was launched, involving the first of its kind law enforcement-university partnership between the Wichita Police Department and Wichita State University (WSU).
