Executive Bio - Pete Gagliardi
Pete Gagliardi is a consultant on matters related to Crime Gun Intelligence (CGI). He provides thought leadership and strategic planning support to help governments develop sustainable solutions aimed at seeking justice for the victims of gun violence, resolution for their loved ones, and peace for their neighbors.
He has 50+ years of experience extracting useful investigative information from crime guns and related evidence in both the public and private sectors.
Thirty of those years were in law enforcement - most of which was focused on the investigation of firearms and explosives-related crimes with the United States Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF). He has served as ATF’s principal liaison to Congress, the Deputy Assistant Director of Science and Technology, the Deputy Assistant Director of Law Enforcement Programs, and the Chief of Strategic Planning. In 1999, Pete retired from ATF as the Special Agent in Charge of the New York Field Division.
Following his retirement, he spent 16 years as the Senior Vice President with Ultra Electronics Forensic Technology Inc. and its predecessor Forensic Technology Inc., the developers of the Integrated Ballistics Identification System (IBIS).
One of the primary developers of the ATF National Integrated Ballistics Information Network (NIBIN) Program, Pete’s experience with ballistics information-sharing networks spans over 25 years - from “day one” of the creation of the ATF program in 1993 - to similar programs established in over 75 countries today.
Over the years, Pete refined a strategic concept he calls Triple Barrel Strategies. It is built upon three canons: Cross-jurisdictional TEAMWORK, policy-driven TACTICS, and layers of leveraging TECHNOLOGY.
Pete shares his concepts and best practices learned from others through writings, speeches, seminars, and workshops, based on his book entitled: The 13 Critical Tasks: An Inside-Out Approach to Solving More Gun Crime (3rdEdition) and other relevant publicly available expert resources.
He is a life member of the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) and served for many years on the organization's Firearms Committee.
