He has received numerous awards for his Interdiction efforts and the training he provides, and currently has several "record size" seizures. He also has made presentations about this subject matter to several Governors. Greg is also responsible for very important case law that better enables officers to do this work including the now important United States v. Morgan, Walker, Jones. and United States v. Felts. He still works the road and still actively pursues these criminals during his everyday encounters. He also still works with other officers who have had tremendous success using these techniques. Join him, as he wants to spread his knowledge of catching "bad guys" and learn firsthand from individuals who are out there every day working the "ins and outs" of criminal interdiction.
