Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms Agent

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) is one of the major law enforcement agencies within the Department of Justice, the agency entrusted with preventing terrorism, lowering violent crime incidents, and protecting the Nation as a whole.

Agents of the ATF enforce Federal criminal laws and regulate the firearms and explosives industries. Their commitment to working directly, and through partnerships, to investigate and reduce crime involving firearms and explosives, acts of arson, and illegal trafficking of alcohol and tobacco products is unparalleled.  A career in the ATF is both exciting and varied.
