WCC October Meeting with Jeffrey Stamm Presenting: Drugs, the Border, and the Assult on America
October 5 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Jeffrey B. Stamm spent over 40 years in law enforcement, beginning as a Deputy
Sheriff in Sacramento, California before becoming a Special Agent with the U.S.
Drug Enforcement Administration in 1984. During his 31-year career with DEA,
he served in a myriad of domestic and foreign assignments, to include: San Jose,
California; Brasilia, Brazil; Brownsville, Texas; Islamabad, Pakistan; Kabul,
Afghanistan; Dallas, Texas; DEA Headquarters as the Deputy Chief of
International Operations; and, finally, as the Special Agent in Charge of DEA’s
global Aviation Division.
Following his retirement from DEA in 2016, he was appointed as the Executive
Director of the Midwest High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA) for the
White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) where he
effectively coordinated drug control efforts with his local, state and federal drug
control counterparts across the heartland of America until 2022.
“The Straight Dope: Drugs, the Border and the Assault on America” is a compelling, fast-paced
presentation designed for all audiences to demonstrate the current drug threat to the United
States, especially as it pertains to Mexican Drug Cartels and their exploitation of weak
governments and unsecure borders. Commonalities are also shown between drug trafficking
organizations and international terrorist groups around the world and how U.S. drug demand
fuels both across the globe. Lastly, the implications to the safety and security of our society is illustrated with
unambiguous and powerful examples, along with a set of unapologetic steps necessary to
protect our nation from this existential threat.
