MAV Event Services began in 2009, with the mission of weaving our way through the 2009 Boise State Bronco Football season.

However, “MAV” dates back to 1987 when I, Mark Allen Vucinich, was hired by the Los Angeles Police Department.

During my time in Los Angeles, I worked many off duty special events including crowd control details on and off sites at various Hollywood movie sets, VIP and Dignitary protection details, fraternity parties at the University of Southern California and on-duty patrol for the then Los Angeles Raiders in the Los Angeles Coliseum.

In 1994, I moved my family back to Idaho and resumed my law enforcement career with the Boise Police Department.  It wasn’t long after moving back that I once again began working in an off duty capacity in the field of crowd management for the Boise State Pavilion, currently known as the Taco Bell Arena.  I continued to build on my knowledge and expertise by working at other venues like the Idaho Center, Qwest Arena, Western Idaho Fair, and others.

In 1999, I was offered the position Director of Security for events at Boise State University, in which I gladly accepted.  From that day forward nothing but good things have happened thanks in large part to all the great work by the staff at MAV Event Services.   Our mission had just begun.

In 2009, Central District Health Department (CDHD) was faced with the responsibility of administering tens of thousands of doses of vaccine to the community in response to the H1N1 influenza pandemic. CDHD employed the services of MAV for a five month period. During this time, MAV consistently provided professional staff to protect our resources (i.e., people and materials) and manage large crowds of people, including children and people with disabilities. As a result of their support, CDHD was able to successfully vaccinate over 90,000 individuals without a single compromise to the mission. Without reliable and top-notch support from MAV, CDHD would have not been able to successfully respond to this public health emergency. Their involvement directly resulted in a decrease in influenza-related illnesses and deaths in our community.

Mr. Vucinich and the entire MAV Team,

I thought I’d take a minute to express how impressed I have been with what I’ll call Team MAV. Having been in public safety for nearly 24 years I have interacted with several event service/security providers from a public safety position. MAV’s professionalism in my experience has been of the highest standard. I have interacted with some of you during this season Boise State Football and I am impressed. I have watched you assist and interact with spectators and most recently assist emergency medical service with a near unconscious person. Your presence and participation with spectators makes a difference. I look forward to working with you in the future.
