NIBIN at the Odessa Police Department
OPD partnered with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives in 2020 to combat gun violence within our City and the Permian Basin region.
Currently, we maintain two certified NIBIN specialists, who receive, process, and enter information into the NIBIN system.
Shell casings and firearms that are recovered during investigations are entered into the system with the intent of linking multiple violent gun crime offenses together to be most impactful in our investigations and resource allocation.
Leads are received if a firearm has been linked to other shootings and this enables our Detectives to identify and apprehend habitual gun violence offenders.
