Firearms and Tool Marks
The Firearms Tool Mark Section conducts firearm and tool mark examinations and comparisons, firearm proximity and function testing, obliterated serial number restoration and gunshot residue testing.
This section also maintains the IBIS (Integrated Ballistic Identification System) ballistic database in conjunction with the ATF (Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms). The IBIS system is used for data entry, comparison and identification of ballistic evidence.
