Please join us on Wednesday June 14th as we hear an update from Tom Synan / Hamilton County Drug Coalition.
Chief Thomas Synan, Jr. is a United States Marine Corps veteran, a 28- year police veteran and the current Chief of Police with the Newtown Police Department.
In 2014, after watching the last of an entire family die from drugs, the last two from heroin and fentanyl, Mr. Synan met with other members in Hamilton County and helped for the Hamilton County Addiction Response Coalition where he sits on the Steering Committee and Chair Interdiction. Mr. Synan coordinates law enforcement efforts to reduce supply and works with other members to help reduce demand.
Mr. Synan was asked to testify in Washington D.C. at a U.S. Senate Homeland Security Committee giving testimony on synthetic opiates and the impact fentanyl and carfentanil have had on the country. Mr. Synan was a speaker with President Clinton and other distinguished panelists for the Clinton Foundation discussing the opioid crisis at Johns Hopkins University. Mr. Synan’s career and work with the opiate epidemic has been recorded and archived in the National Law Enforcement Museum in Washington D.C. His work with the Coalition has been used in national and international publications and media outlets. Mr. Synan has spoken internationally on the opiate issue.
Happy Bucks will go to support 1N5 for May and June.
We hope to see you there!
