United Nations Trains Belizeans on Forensic Ballistic Analysts

The United Nations Regional Centre for Peace, Disarmament and Development in Latin America and the Caribbean (UNLIREC) in collaboration with the British High Commission in Belize and the Ministry of National Security is conducting one week Training on Forensic Ballistics mainly in support of criminal investigations and the counter-proliferation of firearms and ammunition.
 
A one day seminar entitled ‘Overview of Forensic Ballistics for Decision-Makers and Policy-Makers’  will be followed by a 4 day technical course exclusively for forensic technicians, forensic scientists and other specialized personnel. These activities form part of UNLIREC´s broader technical assistance to countries of the Caribbean and Central America focused on curbing illicit small arms trafficking and reducing armed violence.
 
The National Forensic Science Service continues to receive advance training on the newly acquired IBIS 3D system. The Integrated Ballistics Identification System was introduced to Belize in October of last year, promised a new means for the National Forensic Science Service to solve gun-related crimes.  The equipment, which was donated by the Canadian government, is state-of-the-art and was developed to speed up the laborious process of matching ballistics information in criminal investigations.
