OJP is committed to advancing work that promotes civil rights and racial equity, increases access to justice, supports crime victims and individuals impacted by the justice system, strengthens community safety and protects the public from crime and evolving threats and builds trust between law enforcement
and the community.
In collaboration with local law enforcement, public and state-controlled institutions of higher education can utilize the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) National Integrated Ballistic Information Network (NIBIN) to expose students to and educate them on the importance of firearm ballistics.
This initiative will allow institutions of higher education to develop programs to provide students with hands-on training on the processing of firearms evidence used to generate crime gun intelligence (CGI) and the investigative processes that lead to arrest and conviction.
