Welcome to ATF’s New York Field Division. Our dedicated work force is comprised of special agents, investigators, auditors, technicians and support staff serving the entire state of New York.

ATF New York is committed to reducing violent crime in our communities by denying criminals access to firearms and by removing armed offenders from our streets to face justice in our courts. Our criminal investigations routinely target specific criminal organizations and violent gangs. In the past year several criminal cases have been made against violent street gangs in New York City, Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse, Albany and Long Island.

ATF New York also focuses significant attention towards violations of the federal arson and explosives laws and illegal tobacco diversion.

We also have the duty of regulating the firearms and explosives industry. Our goal is to ensure that all firearms and explosives are stored, handled and sold in a safe manner according to law.

We encourage all citizens to get involved and assist us in our goal of reducing crime in our neighborhoods. If you have any information regarding illegal firearms or explosives trafficking, arson or violent gangs or even illegal tobacco diversion, please give us a call and let us know. Our telephone number at the New York ATF NY Crime Gun Center is 646-335-9070. It is staffed 24 hours-seven days a week. We need to hear from you in order for us to know what we can do for you.
