INTERPOL Firearm Forensics Symposium (IFFS)

12-15 May 2013 - Montreal, Canada

The INTERPOL Firearm Forensics Symposium (IFFS) is designed for individuals who investigate firearms related crimes, heads of police agencies and those who shape policy aimed at combating firearm crime.

In May 2013, the four-day international meeting brought together nearly 300 professionals, academics and policy makers from more than 70 countries.

The event reviewed national and international trends in firearms violence, explored advances in firearm forensics analysis and investigations, and recommended international best practices to combat the threat of firearm crimes.

The wide-ranging agenda included presentation of the INTERPOL Ballistic Information Network (IBIN), several training sessions and workshops for both IBIN users and administrators.

Held every two years, the IFFS is organized in cooperation with Forensic Technology Inc., the pioneers of automated ballistics identification.
