ECRW to Host Police Eddie Salazar
The Ellis County Republican Women will convene at 7:00 p.m. on June 20 for their monthly meeting at the Woodmen of the World facility at 610 Water St. in Waxahachie. The speaker will be the Ferris Police Chief Eddie Salazar who is a 22 year veteran law enforcement officer. Before entering law enforcement he served 13 years in the United States Marine Corps. He attained the rank of Staff Sergeant before leaving active duty. He began his career, in law enforcement, as a Deputy Sheriff in Newberry, South Carolina. He rose through the ranks to become the Captain of the Uniform Patrol Division. He supervised the County 911 Dispatch Center and the Community Policing Division. Chief Salazar returned home to Texas in 2003 and joined the Ennis Police Force in 2004 through 2008. He then moved to continue law enforcement training in Dallas County.
In October 2015, he became the Chief of the Ferris Police Department.
Since becoming the Chief of Ferris Police Department, Chief Salazar has managed to move the department in a positive direction. The Department has received recognition from Congressman Joe Barton for their Community Policing programs. State Representative John Wray also recognized the police department for the Pay It Forward program.
Chief Salazar is a forward thinker, he's always looking at ways to improve the relationship between law enforcement and the citizens they serve.
