Lenny DePaul has spent over three decades pursued the most violent criminals, terrorists and drug runners as the head of the largest fugitive tracking force in the entire world. Last year, he stepped down as Chief Inspector and Commander of the US Marshall Fugitive Task Force, where DePaul oversaw over 380 fulltime investigators from over 90 Federal, State, and Local agencies.
Under his watch, the Task Force was averaging over 100 fugitive arrests per week and answered only to the US Congress. Before leading the US Marshall Fugitive Task Force, DePaul spent five years in the US Navy and another five protecting high value targets for the United States Secret Service.
DePaul has always be drawn to the tools and tactics necessary to be a successful 'man hunter' and lives by the Ernest Hemingway quote that "There is no hunting like the hunting of man, and those who have hunted armed men long enough and liked it, never care for anything else thereafter."
Due to the many successes of his man hunting team, DePaul was often called in to locate some of the most notable fugitives when all other agencies had failed. Whether it was the Boston Bomber or the DC Sniper, DePaul’s ability to uncover the trail of a fugitive that no one else has been able to is one of the reasons he is one of the most respected man hunters in the entire world.
