ATF gives citizens a peek
The U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is giving local community leaders an inside look to their operations.
The Glendale-based bureau will host a citizen’s academy from Oct. 7 to Nov. 12, where 36 students will learn about firearms safety, explosives regulations and other ATF programs.
To join the academy, students had to be at least 21 years old, have no felony convictions and were local business, religious and community leaders.
Local civic leaders looking to participate in the next ATF academy, which is scheduled for Spring 2010, can call the bureau at (818) 265-2500.
