SAS Approach to Crime Gun Intelligence Centers: Gun Intelligence Collection and Ballistics Analysis Support

Learn how SAS technology enables Crime Gun Intelligence Centers to manage, gain insights into and uncover relationships in crime gun data.

About the webinar

As the primary line of defense against crime-related firearms, Crime Gun Intelligence Centers (CGICs) are integral to the safety of communities across the country.

That's why SAS offers intelligence capturing and analytics tools to manage and gain insights into the various data streams associated with crime guns – including NIBIN, IBIS, eTrace, and other ballistic-related intelligence and investigative data sources – that reveal both obvious and non-obvious relationships.

SAS can help CGICs make sense of it all while automating manual processes to reduce the time from initial lead to actionable investigation.

Richard Bright, SAS Solutions Architect and Army veteran, Maj. Joe Brennan, Executive Officer with the New Jersey State Police, and Col. Patrick Callahan, New Jersey State Police, will discuss information sharing and intelligence production needed to support law enforcement, counterterrorism and homeland security missions.

Join us for a discussion of how SAS can help you reduce time to intelligence so you can identify shooters and disrupt criminal activity.
