Martin Schwartz: EPA's National Use of Force Coordinator


Martin Schwartz is a Special Agent for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and has served as its National Use of Force Coordinator since 2001. Martin became interested in a career in law enforcement when serving in the U.S. Air Force in Kosovo as part of a United Nations Police Mission. Upon leaving the Air Force, Martin was a police officer in New Jersey for 25 years. Martin is particularly pleased that, as the National Coordinator, he can apply the skills that he has learned over the years to train every EPA Special Agent in the appropriate use of force.

EPA”s special agents are responsible for investigating allegations of environmental crime and assisting the Department of Justice in building and prosecuting successful criminal cases involving the most egregious violations of environmental statutes, thus deterring future crimes. They are federal law enforcement officers with complete statutory authority to conduct investigations, carry firearms, make arrests for any federal crime, and execute and serve warrants.
