NIBIN National Correlation and Training Center

A forensics expert conducts a firearms traceATF’s National Integrated Ballistic Information Network (NIBIN) National Correlation and Training Center (NNCTC) conducts ballistics image correlations and returns investigative leads to more than 400 law enforcement agencies across the nation. This accounts for roughly 30% of all ballistic image acquisitions in the United States.

By working closely with individual NIBIN partner sites, NNCTC enables them to concentrate their limited resources on other critical aspects of the NIBIN process. These leads are used to help solve homicides, attempted homicides, robberies and other shooting incidents. 

As of September 2020, NNCTC has conducted 360,293 correlation reviews resulting in 96,724 leads sent to partner sites all over the country, with a 99.6% confirmation rate of the leads. Since the training center's opening in April 2016, 1,015 state and local law enforcement employees have received specialized NIBIN training

As a result, an additional 400 local, state and federal personnel will receive training on NIBIN equipment and processes.
