To support police officers responsible for investigating firearm-related crimes, INTERPOL offers powerful tools that help member countries improve their collection of firearms intelligence – using information from both the outside of the firearm as well as the inside of the weapon – to prevent and solve crime. Leveraging this information can help police identify links between pairs of spent bullets and cartridge cases whether they are separated by a few streets, or continents.

Organized in co-operation with Forensic Technology Inc., the pioneers of automated ballistics identification, IFFS is a unique opportunity to bring together ballistic experts, forensic scientists, law enforcement professionals, public safety administrators, policy makers and national agency directors from INTERPOL member countries.
