President Donald Trump is set to name former New York City sheriff Bill Bratton as a deputy administrator for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, according to a new report.

Bratton was hired in January, months after the president fired former FBI Director James Comey.

Trump had long sought to hire a gun safety official at the bureau.

The bureau currently has two deputies, one of whom was the subject of an internal FBI investigation into ties between his staff and Russian officials.

Brady had served as the top cop in New York for 17 years.
