ATF Small Arms Trafficking Course

On October 15, the one-week Small Arms Trafficking course concluded. The course focused on areas related to firearms trafficking, including firearms identification, firearms tracing, identifying homemade and counterfeit firearms, 3D printing of firearms, social media exploitation, internet firearm investigation techniques, operational security & operational planning, and interview and deception detection techniques. Instructional methods included lectures from ATF and Regional subject matter experts and relevant practical exercises to further enhance participant’s investigative skills. After graduating this course, participants became able to articulate and demonstrate enhanced investigative techniques for the detection and apprehension of firearms traffickers and those using firearms in violent crimes.

Ilea Budapest congratulates the delegations from Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, and Slovakia on their excellent participation in the course, which was taught by outstanding instructors from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF). It was a special joy to welcome back 10 of our Alumni among the participants of the course.
