Olympic Peninsula Narcotics Enforcement Team (OPNET)

 
 
 
The mission of the Olympic Peninsula Narcotics Enforcement Team is to target drug violators that have a major impact on our communities and to reduce drug availability and trafficking in Washington State and Clallam County and Jefferson County, thereby improving the quality of life in our area of responsibility.
 

Goals

Reduce the number of drug traffickers in the communities of Clallam County and Jefferson County through the professional investigation, apprehension, and conviction of drug traffickers.

Efficiently attack, disrupt, prosecute individual and organized mid to upper level drug traffickers who do not recognize jurisdictional boundaries or limitations, and by doing so, impact drug trafficking organizations previously impregnable.

Enhance drug enforcement cooperation and coordination through multi-agency investigations, support, training of local jurisdictions, and the sharing of resources and information.

To address these issues with the foremost consideration of safety for both law enforcement and the community.

 

 
 
Reach Out and Read helps Washington’s youngest children be ready for kindergarten by partnering with doctors to prescribe books and encourage families to read together.  
 
Reach Out and Read doctors give young children new books and inspire families to read together, starting when children are babies. At each well-child checkup, medical providers teach parents how cuddling together and sharing books builds language and literacy skills that will help children be ready for school.
 
 
 
 
 

Sean's Note: Our club gives out scholarships every year. This club in Miami takes it to a whole new level!

 

Ever think of finding 600+ needles in a haystack? The idea intrigued me and so I began the “reconnect” project in 2010 for the Rotary Club of Miami.

The Rotary Club of Miami awards scholarships to local high school graduates who are now attending medical school through the Thomas Brown McClelland Trust. The Trust was set up through an endowment established by Miami Rotarian Thomas Brown McClelland upon his passing in the early 1980s. It has since awarded over $6 million in scholarships. But no effort was ever made to reach out to former recipients to track their successes and explore opportunities within the network. Hoping to track the impact, I took on the task. 

140909_brodThe magic of the Internet

I found a list of scholarship recipients and decided to see what magic the Internet could conjure up! While it was time consuming, I knew that all the recipients were now doctors, which helped. Armed with their name, medical school attended, and graduation date, I was able to find more current contact information.

I tackled the list of contacts in small batches. An introductory letter was sent, along with a survey. It was rewarding to discover their many accomplishments and how significant the scholarship awards had been in building their career. Once contact information for all alumni had been collected, a newsletter was created to connect the community. Now, twice a year, the newsletter is sent to everyone and includes alumni updates and information about current award recipients.

The effort gave birth to a Thomas Brown McClelland Trust family and I am so thrilled to be a driving force behind it. As a bonus, over $28,000 has been contributed back to the Trust by former recipients seeking to support those following in their footsteps. The search for those 600+ needles was certainly worth the time and effort.
