What does it take to succeed in the investigation of crimes involving firearms?  First and foremost, it requires a collaboration of police investigators, forensic experts, and prosecutors thinking and acting together.

Investigative leads identified through the use of the ATF National Integrated Ballistic Information Network (NIBIN) are powerful sources for crime gun intelligence.  However, to maximize the value of the intelligence both for the investigation and prosecution of the cases, leads must be provided to analysts, investigators and prosecutors in a timely and comprehensive manner.

The presenters for this next installment of our 2019 Preventive Crime Gun Strategy webinar series are Marisa KcKeown, Supervising Deputy District Attorney in Santa Clara County, and Ron Nichols, a Forensic Firearm Examiner.

They will discuss:

  • How NIBIN leads, as well as other sources of crime gun intelligence, are utilized at every phase of the investigative and prosecutorial process
  • Specific procedures and strategies that have been implemented
  • Case Examples
