Federal fund Fort Lauderdale’s new Law Enforcement Crime Gun Intelligence Center
Fort Lauderdale, Florida – On Tuesday police Chief Larry Scirotto and Mayor Dean Trantalis announced at City Hall that Fort Lauderdale will be investigating shootings like no other city in Broward County.
A federal grant will help set up the city’s new Law Enforcement Crime Gun Intelligence Center.
According to FLPD, the center will use ballistic fingerprints — a firearm’s unique pattern of markings left on discharged ammunition that serves as a forensics tool — to help detectives solve crimes.
The center will make it easier for FLPD to work with the FBI, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms, the Broward Sheriff’s Office, and the Broward County State Attorney’s Office.
