Martin J. Maguire
Mr. Maguire is a security professional with an
outstanding twenty-seven year law enforcement career
with the Drug Enforcement Administration. He supervised
and directed many high level and complex criminal
investigations both domestically and internationally. He
has managed numerous types of investigations involving
narcotics, money laundering, drug related homicides and
internal affairs issues. He spent several years in
Germany and was the DEA's advisor to both the German
Federal and State Police. His last three years with the
Department of Justice were spent in the Office of the
Inspector General where he was in charge of the New York
Field Office of Internal Affairs.
Upon retirement from the DEA, he became the Vice
President of a corporate investigative firm, Sutton
Associates, with responsibility for its Due Diligence
Department. He provided comprehensive intelligence
concerning corporations and their principals thus
enabling clients to make informed business decisions.
In 2000 he joined Major League Baseball as Director of
Investigations. He helped develop and implement security
procedures for all thirty Major League Baseball Stadiums
in the post- Sept 11th environment. He formulated the
security protocols and crowd control measures for
several World Series, All Star Games and international
contests and was responsible for protecting the
integrity of our national pastime. As a security
consultant, he has done security assessments for several
school districts and professional sports teams. In 2004
he was the law enforcement liaison for the contemplated
New York Jets Stadium and continues to maintain
extensive liaison contacts within both the New York City
Police and Fire Departments. He performed an extensive
security assessment for both Yankee Stadium and the
Yankee team itself during their road games' travels to
enhance their security procedures.
His investigations have included specific incidents of
crowd misconduct, such as the infamous Gamboa incident
in Chicago during which a father and son assaulted a
coach on field. He reported his findings to the
Commissioner of Baseball along with several remedial
action points that were subsequently initiated. His
experience and foresight in recognizing potentially life
threatening crowd control issues made him one of the
most respected authorities in professional sports
security. He continues to consult with MLB and has made
presentations before stadium operations directors'
conferences and other collegiate and professional sports
organizations such as the Information Display and
Entertainment Association (IDEA).
