The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) Denver Field Division will now have a new leader.
As the new Special Agent in Charge of the Denver Field Division, Andrew Traver will be responsible for overseeing the operational aspects of ATF activities in Colorado, Montana, Utah and Wyoming, ATF said.
“I am highly encouraged to see the great cooperative relationships ATF has established with our law enforcement partners throughout the entire Denver Field Division,” Traver said. “We will continue to target the most violent offenders with the goal of reducing violent crime and making our communities safer places to live.”
Traver started his ATF career as a special agent in the Chicago Field Division in 1987. He later served in various supervisory capacities, including Group Supervisor in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Resident Agent in Charge of the Camden Field Office in New Jersey; Assistant Special Agent in Charge of the New Orleans Field Division; and Assistant Special Agent in Charge of the San Francisco Field Division.
Most recently, Traver served as the Special Agent in Charge of the Chicago Field Division.
Traver graduated summa cum laude from Northern Illinois University with a bachelor’s degree in Sociology/Criminal Justice. After graduation, Traver joined the U.S. Navy and graduated third in his class from Officer Candidate School in Newport, Rhode Island.
