Special agent to discuss homeland security on Feb. 8

Christopher Martinez, assistant special agent in Charge with Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Homeland Security Investigations, will bring the agency to life through his personal stories during a free White Fund lecture titled “Homeland Security in 2013: An Overview.”

The lecture, held in partnership with Northern Essex Community College, will be Feb. 8 at 8:45 a.m. at Lawrence High School, 70-72 N. Parish Road. This event is free and open to the public.

Originally from Worcester, Martinez is a first-generation college graduate who has enjoyed a career of more than 25 years with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and one of its predecessor agencies, the U.S. Customs Service, since 1987. Currently stationed in Newark, N.J., Martinez oversees a financial investigations division, an undercover operation, and a Resident Agent in Charge office.

Martinez will talk about his experiences as a special agent and his numerous successes, including dismantling narcotic smuggling organizations, solving financial crimes to defraud citizens and the government, working with our international partners to capture child predators, and assisting our law enforcement partners in Central and South America to increase knowledge and investigative capacity. He received his bachelor’s degree from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University and a master’s degree from Saint Leo University. Martinez is enrolled in a doctoral program at Northcentral University.
