February 23rd, 2007 - 11:16am

(Port Angeles) -- The local team charged with fighting the drug trade has gained another investigator. The Olympic Peninsula Narcotics Enforcement Team, recently has added a detective from the local tribes. OPNET is staffed by investigators and other personnel from area law enforcement agencies, but has not had a representative from the tribes. Along with an additional investigator, the board that oversees OPNET also has new leadership. Yesterday, OPNET's policy board selected Sequim Police Chief Robert Spinks to become the new chair. And the vice chairman went to Chief Rod Charles of the Lower Elwha Police Department. Both were selected on a unanimous vote. OPNET now has seventeen local, state and federal law enforcement agencies among its members. Currently, the program is staffed by two detectives from Clallam County Sheriffs Department, a detective from the Washington State Patrol, a detective from the Lower Elwha Klallam Police, and a supervisor from The Port Angeles Police Department. The Clallam County Sheriff Office also provides support services to the program. The remaining agencies participate either through supplemental funding, or assignment of personnel to the unit as needed.
