During his long Criminal Justice career, primarily in the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), Adam Quirk has done many different things to keep his country and his community safe. During his decades in the DEA, Adam spent most of his time as a diversion investigator. That means he investigated cases in which criminals diverted legal deliveries of controlled substances before they could get to their legal destination, so they could sell them illegally. This is important because patients who need these drugs were denied them because they never got to the hospital, clinic, pharmacy or treatment center for which they were intended.
His investigatory prowess was such that Adam Quirk was frequently chosen as a team leader on numerous long-term investigations. At the DEA, Adam Quirk also conducted security assessments for DEA registrants of all types, including manufacturers, distributors and treatment center personnel. These are important security assessments because they are key to preventing drugs form getting into the wrong hands.
When it comes to background checks, Adam Quirk was something of a star, even before he landed at the DEA. For example, he conducted thousands of background checks for potential Air Marshalls during the time immediately following the 9/11 terrorist attacks. He has done a lot more, of course; in fact, Adam has worked in the criminal justice and law enforcement at nearly every level, in both the public and the private sectors. He has done almost everything; he has investigated multi-jurisdictional and complex drug and violent crimes, he’s executed warrants. All of that is in addition to the thousands of interrogations and screening interviews he has conducted all over the United States.
At this point, criminal justice specialist Adam Quirk has worked at virtually every level of the criminal justice system over the last couple of decades, in both the private and public sectors. Therefore, it would be accurate to suggest that Adam is highly skilled in that arena. He has seemingly always demonstrated a commitment to a career in criminal justice, but it has been especially pronounced in the wake of the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.
Following 9/11, Adam Quirk worked with a team that conducted thorough background investigations of applicants and candidates who wanted to serve as Air Marshals, who require an extremely high-level security clearance. Over the course of his time there, Adam performed thousands of in-person interviews of potential air marshal candidates as a part of the screening process and he was given accolades for his completion rate in one of the top divisions in the country.
Adam Quirk has a tendency to be a very forward-thinking when it comes to the area of security and criminal justice and he takes the time to always learn as many new technologies as possible. He has often been called to testify as an expert witness in cases at both the state and federal levels, because there are few more knowledgeable when it comes to how cellular technology works. He is always continuing to learn as much as he can. He earned a Bachelors degree in Criminal Justice from the University of Wisconsin at Eau Claire in 2001. Six years after that, Adam earned a Masters Degree in Criminal Justice and Criminology from Boston University. These days, he is working toward a Master's Degree in Business Administration (MBA) from the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh.
