PIX11 gets exclusive access to ATF’s crime-solving technology

A microscopic technology is being used more and more by local, state and federal law enforcement agencies across the country.

It’s called the National Integrated Ballistic Information, or NIBIN.

“It’s a database that links shell casings from different crime scenes by the individual fingerprint that’s left on that casing,” said Christopher Amon, deputy chief of firearms operations division at the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF).

He oversees the system.
