To describe Adam Quirk as an accomplished and experienced criminal justice professional is to tell only part of the story. For more than 15 years now, he has been committed to a career in criminal justice. The impetus for this was the terrorist attacks in New York, Virginia and Pennsylvania on Sept. 11, 2001. That’s when he started conducting thorough background investigations of applicants and candidates to be Air Marshals.


Back in 2004, Adam Quirk started working with the Drug Enforcement Administration as a Diversion investigator. In this position, he worked on teams that investigated the diversion of controlled substances, which is roundabout way of saying that he investigated cases where drugs were supposed to go to pharmacies, hospitals or other legal sellers, but someone took them before they arrived. Because of the investigatory experience he had to date, Adam was often a team leader for long-term drug investigations. He also conducted numerous security assessments for all sorts of DEA registrants, including drug manufacturers, distributors and treatment center personnel.


Adam Quirk has worked in criminal justice and law enforcement at nearly every level, in both the public and the private sectors. He has investigated almost everything imaginable, including multi-jurisdictional and complex drug and violent crimes. He has also executed warrants, and conducted thousands of interrogations and screening interviews all over the United States. Adam tends to be very forward-thinking, to the point that he was highly trained in numerous newer technologies designed to pinpoint locations and identify suspects, including cellular phone tracking, call detail record analysis, and radio frequency technology. He has worked on these technologies enough that he qualifies as a cellular technology expert in federal and state courts.
