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).
