Personal Biography for Gregory Salazar, Owner and Chief Operating Officer for POLARIS INVESTIGATION, LLC. In 1980, after graduation from High School, I enlisted in the US Marine Corps, and was sent to the MC Recruit Depot (MCRD) in San Diego, Ca. Upon completion of “boot camp” and Infantry Training School at Camp Pendleton, Ca, I was assigned to Marine Barracks, Subic Bay, Philippines. My duties included the security and protection of the Naval Magazine, a military reservation used to store ammunition for the US Navy’s 7th Fleet. While stationed at this post, I received instruction in jungle warfare and survival. In 1982, I was then re-assigned to the First Marine Division in Camp Pendleton, Ca. as a M-60 Machine gunner, and became section leader of my Machinegun Squad shortly after my arrival. I was then re-deployed to Panama, Japan, Korea, the Philippines and Diego Garcia, a small island located approximately 300 miles south of India, in the Indian Ocean. I was Honorably Discharged in 1984 with the rank of Corporal, as a non-commissioned officer. I then returned to Colorado, and attended the University of Colorado and Metro State College in Denver and received a BS in Criminal Justice with Minors in Spanish and Cultural Anthropology. After receiving my degree, I applied for, and was accepted as candidate for the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Special Agent (SA) program and attended the FBI Academy in Quantico, Va. Because of my foreign language abilities, I spent almost my entire career as an undercover drug agent, primarily targeting Mexican and Columbian Drug Traffickers and violent street gang members involved in the distribution of narcotics. Before my retirement, I had the pleasure of serving as a DEA Agent in Colorado, Latin America, the Caribbean, California, Washington DC, and finally Arizona. I now own and operate a Private Investigation Agency in Arizona, Polaris Investigation, LLC. My Website is www.polarisinvestigation.com. My duties as a Senior Special Agent with the DEA included, but were not limited to, targeting and developing viable narcotics investigations using a variety of investigative techniques comely used by law enforcement to wit; undercover operations; recruiting, handling and deployment of Cooperating Sources (CS); title III non- consensual wire taps; interdiction of both narcotics and suspected drug money; electronic, stationary and moving surveillances; drug sting reversals; money laundering; investigative research using private, government and public records; interviews and interrogations; writing and executing search and arrest warrants, writing timely and accurate reports, collection and storage of evidence; locating and interviewing witnesses; complying with court orders; tracking and outlining drug trafficking organizations and their patterns; seizing drug generated monies and property; testifying in Federal and State Grand Juries and Court cases, and conferring and working in tandem with prosecuting attorneys and other government agencies.
