Dear Colonel Lemmon:

Synar compliance inspections for >2005 have been completed. Statistical reports show that
we have met federal regulations by having a >buy rate= of under 20%. Therefore, this years=
effort has been quite successful with preliminary results in at 13.5%. Because of our
success, state treatment and prevention funds/services will stay intact for another year.

Again, the main reason that the ‘2005 Synar inspections were successful is because of the
pro-active involvement of the State Police troopers and various detachment/headquarters
personnel. Troopers assisted Community Development Specialists and me by serving as law
enforcement officers during the Synar inspection process. All troopers did an exemplary job.
Other staff made arrangements or set schedules so that troopers were available for
inspections. My thanks go to those staff members as well although I may have no way of
knowing who they might be.

us. Commendation notification for troopers involved in the implementation of ‘targeted’
inspections will be sent separately once ‘targeted’ inspections have been completed.

I also appreciate all the assistance that Lt. Col. Sloan, Ms. Kay Bragg, Mr. Ron Twohig,
troop/district/detachment commanders and support staff have provided (both at Headquarters
and in the detachment offices). They have been wonderful in providing the information and
assistance that I and Community Development Specialists need in order to effectively do our

I continue to look forward to working with you and the professionals in your system.
