Firearms and Tool Marks

The Firearms Tool Mark Section conducts firearm and tool mark examinations and comparisons, firearm proximity and function testing and serial number restoration. These examinations may include bullet caliber determination and bullet/casing identification or elimination. This section also utilizes the IBIS system (Integrated Ballistic Identification System). IBIS is an inter-agency database used as an investigative tool. The purpose of this system is to aid in discovering potential links between crime scenes and their firearms evidence.  Once connections are made, the information is provided to detectives as an investigative lead.
