Firearms services

We provide valuable tools for police to solve firearm-related crime and prevent gun crime in Australia.

Ballistic matching

Our Australian Ballistic Information Network (ABIN) helps police match ballistic evidence across state and territory borders.

Firearms reference

Our Australian Firearms Information Network (AFIN) helps police and other law enforcement agencies manage the registration, licensing and movement of firearms coming into Australia and moving between our states and territories.

Our National Firearms Identification Database (NFID) helps police to identify and describe individual firearms consistently.

National Firearm Trace Program

The Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission (ACIC) National Firearm Trace Program allows our law enforcement partners to submit web-based illicit firearm trace requests. Our agency consolidates the information and creates a national picture of the firearm types in the Australia illicit firearm market, and the diversion methods used to reach that point. Law enforcement can guntrace [at] acic.gov.au (subject: Firearm%20Trace%20Portal) (email us to request a National Firearm Trace Program account).
