ATF Police Officer's Guide to Recovered Firearms

The Project Safe Neighborhoods Initiative in partnership with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms & Explosives (ATF) and Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) developed a mobile application as a proactive gun violence prevention strategy and tool. The ATF Police Officer's Guide to Recovered Firearms mobile application is designed to assist law enforcement in firearm identification, trace, recovery and safety. Utilizing the app, law enforcement officials will receive strategies to enhance firearm safety, a visual guide for accuracy in firearm identification and a collection of tips, policies and procedures to assist in firearms investigations. The ATF Firearms app is a helpful resource as investigative priorities focus on targeting armed violent offenders and career criminals, narcotics traffickers, narco-terrorists, violent gangs, and domestic and international arms traffickers.
