The National Integrated Ballistic Information Network (NIBIN) is a useful, evidence-based tool for law enforcement’s fight against violent gun crime. As NIBIN continues to expand, more law enforcement agencies are able to take advantage of its important information. With that expansion, however, comes an increase in leads developed by NIBIN, often overwhelming departments and law enforcement in a region. Determining the investigative potential of these leads through effective triage is a critical piece to any successful NIBIN program.
This webinar featured a standardized and highly effective approach to accomplish NIBIN lead triage in a very short amount of time. Using geography, events, time, and solvability factors (GETS), departments are able to systematically triage NIBIN leads, saving hundreds of hours of criminal intelligence and investigative resource expenditures.
