Pete Gagliardi is the Principal Officer at Triple Barrel Strategies, LLC. 


He has over 48 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 and Firearms (ATF).


Pete spent over half of his career in the field as an experienced “street agent” and field supervisor.


He later was assigned to several key senior executive positions at ATF headquarters in Washington, DC. There he served as the agency’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. During his tenure in New York, he was responsible for managing all of ATF’s law enforcement and regulatory operations within the New York /New Jersey metropolitan area. 


Following his retirement from ATF, Pete went to work for Forensic Technology Inc. the creators of the Integrated Ballistics Identification System (IBIS). 


After 17 years in the ballistics technology arena, Pete separated from the company now known as Ultra Electronics Forensic Technology to pursue consultancy work by establishing Triple Barrel Strategies, LLC, in May of 2015.


As 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 20 years - from “Day One” of the creation of the ATF program in 1993 - to programs established in over 70 countries today.


With more than four decades of experience, Pete has developed a keen sense of awareness of the important factors to be considered in the design of effective violence reduction programs that provide substantial and sustainable benefits for the cop on the street – the policymaker – and the public at large.  Many of the programs and solutions that Pete was instrumental in developing continue to receive national and international recognition. 


In 2010, Pete authored a book entitled: The 13 Critical Tasks: An Inside-Out Approach to Solving More Gun Crime now in its 3rd edition and has presented his works at conferences and seminars across the United States and internationally in many other countries throughout the world as well.


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.


Pete’s vision for Triple Barrel Strategies, LLC is to help governments and law enforcers better seek justice for the victims of gun violence, resolution for their loved ones and peace for their neighbors by institutionalizing standards supporting cross-jurisdictional teamwork, policy-driven tactics, and layered and leveraged technologies.
