Twenty-year veteran Essam Rabadi became the new special agent in charge this month, reports.

Rabadi, a native of Yonkers, N.Y., became an ATF special agent in 1992, three years after he started off as a local police officer, reported. Rabadi supervised the Philadelphia division’s drug-trafficking task force from 2000 to 2005.

Rabadi’s new job requires him to oversee 14 ATF offices in Pennsylvania.

“ATF remains dedicated to identifying, targeting, and investigating violent criminals who prey upon innocent citizens and lessen the quality of life in our neighborhoods,” Rabadi said in a statement.
