Forensic Science Division  Hired personnel to oversee the National Inte- grated Ballistic Information Network (NIBIN). NIBIN is a national database of digital images of spent bullets and cartridge cases that were found at crime scenes or test-fired from confis- cated weapons. Firearms Examiners and Tech- nicians enter cartridge casing evidence into the system, which are correlated against the data- base. Law enforcement can search against evi- dence from their jurisdiction, neighboring ones, and others across the country. The Fort Worth Police Department has long utilized the data- base, but until 2017 did not have dedicated staff to enter cartridge and casing evidence into the system. Below is recent NIBIN data that shows how dedicating personnel to NIBIN re- sults in more leads.  Purchased a new gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) and flame ionization de- tector (FID) for blood alcohol count (BAC) analy- sis.  The Division is scheduled to receive grant fund- ing that will allow the process of validating Y- screening for sexual assault kit examinations to begin.  Received grant funding to validate STRMIX (probabilistic genotyping).
