Making the Connections
In early 2013, HMIC carried out an inspection of police force compliance with the ‘Memorandum of Understanding between the National Ballistics Intelligence Service (NABIS) and the Police Forces and Partner Law Enforcement Agencies of England and Wales’.
NABIS is the national centre for forensic science, intelligence and knowledge which deals with the illegal use, supply and manufacture of firearms and ammunition.
The inspection comprised fieldwork in ten forces. This report sets out the main findings and recommendations.
