How to Become a Bounty Hunter



Yonkers Native Returns Home to Take Top ATF Job in New York

Ashan Benedict, the son of Sri Lankan immigrants, has come home to Yonkers to become the special agent in charge of ATF’s New York Field Division.

“Law enforcement is not a field that South Asians typically go into,” Benedict told the Journal News. “But I guess my personality and growing up in Yonkers … you want to try different things.”

Now 45, Benedict spent 21 years climbing the ATF’s ranks.

Benedict’s wife also is a special agent for the ATF. They have three children and recently moved to Scarsdale.

“It’s fantastic,” he said on a recent morning in the ATF’s Bronx office, speaking about his new assignment. “It really motivates and drives me to do better, because this is not just another post of duty. This is my home.”

“For me, this is the pinnacle of my career,” he added.
