Welcome to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) Denver Field Division. Our Division is responsible for ATF criminal enforcement and industry regulatory activities in the states of Colorado, Montana, Utah and Wyoming. Our dedicated work force is comprised of special agents, investigators, auditors, technicians and support staff.
The men and women of ATF are committed to reducing violent crime in our communities. ATF’s Denver Field Division special agents combat firearms violence by focusing their investigative efforts on armed violent offenders, career criminals, gun traffickers and gangs. We also work in partnership with other local, state and federal law enforcement agencies throughout the field division to accomplish this mission.
Explosives and arson enforcement is an integral part of ATF’s overall violent crime reduction strategy. Highly trained ATF Special Agents combat arson and explosives’ related crimes by conducting independent investigations and by working in partnership with local and state fire investigators and police bomb squads.
ATF also has the duty of regulating the firearms and explosives industries. 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 residents to get involved and assist us in our goal of reducing crime in our communities. If community members have information regarding any violent criminal activity in this region, do not hesitate to contact the Denver Field Division at (303) 575–7600.
