National Ballistics Intelligence Service
|Headquarters||Birmingham, England, United Kingdom|
The National Ballistics Intelligence Service, or NABIS, is the UK'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. These are based in Birmingham, London and Manchester.
Four regional Forensic Hubs operate within four host forces/organisations: Greater Manchester Police (GMP), West Midlands Police (WMP), Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) and the Glasgow unit of SPA Forensic Services.
