INTERPOL and Forensic Technology have launched a public-private partnership that will allow INTERPOL to act as the world’s first international hub for the cross-border exchange of ballistic data.
In an effort to give INTERPOL’s member countries access to essential investigative tools, INTERPOL is providing the network through which any INTERPOL member country can share and compare ballistic data.
The INTERPOL Ballistic Information Network (IBIN) takes the proven concept of searching and comparing ballistic signatures on fired ammunition and expands it to an international level. Through the shared use of the Integrated Ballistics Identification System (IBIS) Correlation Server located at INTERPOL’s General Secretariat in Lyon, France, IBIN-member countries have the ability to extend their reach beyond their domestic borders and combat illegal arms trafficking on a global scale.
