The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) appreciates the opportunity to comment on the Office of Inspector General's (OIG) draft report entitled "Coordination of Investigations by Department of Justice Violent Crime Task Forces." ATF welcomes any opportunity to improve its efforts to reduce violent crime and make our neighborhood safer. ATF is proud of its contributions through Project Safe Neighborhoods and the Violent Crime Impact Teams in support of the Department of Justice objective to reduce violent crime and will continue its efforts in support of the successful coordination of the Department's task force activities.
ATF has reviewed the OIG's draft report and fully supports the effort to ensure that Department task forces maintain a high degree of coordination and collaboration. We agree strongly that coordination among Department components is critical to officer safety and to the efficient use of limited resources, and we will work with the Department and all of its other law enforcement components to continue to coordinate task force activities and implement any necessary improvements.
