Statement on President Biden’s Nomination of Steve Dettelbach as ATF Director
As communities like ours face an ever-widening circle of threats, we look to collaborate more than ever with federal, state, and local law enforcement. In our national fight against extremism and terrorism, the ATF has several critical roles including as the lead federal agency tasked with responding to arson at houses of worship. Steve Dettelbach’s history of partnership with our community and his record in taking on extremists is decades long. He can, from day one, make the most of opportunities where ATF can partner with others. And community outreach and stakeholder engagement is in his blood. We look forward to working with him again once confirmed.
