The Pitt County Sheriff’s Office Crime Gun Intelligence Center

The Pitt County Sheriff’s Office, in partnership with the Charlotte Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF), plans to create and establish a Crime Gun Intelligence Center in Pitt County, North Carolina, as there is not one in current proximity. The purpose of the Pitt County Crime Gun Intelligence Center (PCCGIC) will be to utilize intelligence, technology, and community engagement to swiftly identify unlawfully used firearms and their sources, and effectively prosecute perpetrators engaged in violent crime. Pitt County will do this by acquiring equipment for NIBIN, the National Integrated Ballistics Information Network, in its state-of-the-art ANSI nationally accredited laboratory.

Date Created: September 8, 2023
