National Ballistics Intelligence Service

The National Ballistics Intelligence Service, or NABIS, is the U.K.'s intelligence service dedicated to managing and providing detailed information regarding firearm-related criminality. The service aims to use its database to store ballistics information about police cases involving firearms, and consequently maintain it for future use and reference. Three new facilities have been created to test and analyse firearms evidence to help link it with other cases.[1] These are based in Birmingham, London and Manchester.[2]

The service was officially launched on 1 April 2008 [3] and can be roughly compared to the Integrated Ballistics Identification System operating in America.
