Criminal Interdiction and Patrolling to Include Hidden Compartment Training
For ANY and ALL Officers

Instructor:  Greg Goltz is a 31year veteran trooper with a large Midwest state police agency.  He is the instructor for his agency in Criminal Interdiction/Patrolling and has instructed Criminal Interdiction/Patrolling to thousands of law enforcement officers and their agencies from all over the United States.  Greg is a veteran Police Service Dog handler, Firearms instructor and Team Leader for SWAT.  He also worked very successfully in undercover operations purchasing illegal drugs of all kinds.  While working in the uniform division he has seized millions of dollars in United States currency and literally thousands of pounds of contraband all while making normal traffic stops that he turned into Criminal Interdiction arrests.  He is a declared Expert witness in both the State and Federal court systems and actively testifies about this subject matter.  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/patrolling.
