Eliot Ness Timeline

During Special Agent Eliot Ness’ ten years of Federal law enforcement service with ATF’s legacy agencies, he is most remembered for his role in the government’s effort to bring down Al Capone, one of the most powerful and violent bootleggers in Chicago. Eliot Ness possessed intelligence, ability and above all else, honesty and integrity which he undisputedly maintained throughout his federal law enforcement career.
