Davenport ballistic identification system helps solve cases faster

Davenport police are now able to solve cases more quickly by using a nationwide program that tracks shell casings. The police department is most excited about the turnaround time for getting ballistic results: before, they would send shell casings to an area near Des Moines and have to wait 4 to 8 months to get results back. Now, they can get results in days or even hours thanks to NIBIN, the National Integrated Ballistic Information Network.
