About Mav

MAV Event Services was formed in 2009 but its roots trace back to the 1980's. Owner Mark Vucinich is a retired veteran of both the LA Police Department and Boise Police Department. In his 32 years  in Law Enforcement, Mark had always been involved in event management and security. MAV Event Services has grown into the most diverse and complete event services company in the region offering Security, Asset Protection Crowd Management, Entry Screening, Alcohol Enforcement, Parking Services, Traffic Management, Ticket Taking/Ushering, Overnight Services, Roaming Patrols, and more. MAV Event Services ensures its team members attend regular training sessions and are equipped with all the tools and resources to ensure successful mission completion for all our clients and their valued guests!




President/Chief Executive Officer

Mark was hired by the Los Angeles Police Department in 1987. For the majority of his tenure with the LAPD, he worked a highly specialized anti-gang task force identified as "OWB CRASH." He also worked patrol for the Los Angeles Raiders in the Los Angeles Coliseum, off-duty crowd control at various Hollywood movie sets, VIP and dignitary protection details, as well as fraternity parties at the University of Southern California.

In 1994, Mark was hired by the Boise Police Department, where he currently holds the rank of Police Detective within the Special Victims Unit. In 1995, Mark began working in the field of crowd management for the Taco Bell Arena, the Ford Idaho Center, Qwest Arena, and the Western Idaho Fair, to name a few. In 1999, he was offered the position of Director of Security for Events at Boise State University. The valuable experience he gained working in this capacity is what eventually led to the formation of MAV Event Services.
