USA Police Departments for Narconon FOIA Requests?
« on: February 05, 2015, 11:23 »
So I've been having a lot of fun lately filing FOIA requests on Scientology stuff via MuckRock.com. And it occurred to me that I should eventually hit some Narconon targets once I'm done working the current Scientology-related angles that have piqued my dox-loving interests. Sort of like what was done in Australia.

So if folks can gather me a list of local police departments ITT for Narconon facilities, along with basic contact info for each police branch just in case I need to get it added to the MuckRock database, plus the rehab's address/phone it relates to,  I'll take a shot at trying to get police blotters and/or incidents reports released for each facility.

After all - the more ya know! ;)

TIA!

I'll start you out with a list of cities and the Narconons.  I'll also include all the names I know of that the Narconons have gone by.  This way, hopefully people will assist by getting the Police Departments for all of these, and your requests can include all the NN names, so the dox will be complete and not just for that one name.

This is (part of) the "cheat sheet" I use on Narconon Reviews to classify each by location.  A * indicates that the facility is a different place than the others in the same town.  This may also include NNs that have closed, but it may still be worthwhile to get any reports.  There may also be some that aren't listed yet, especially for Per Wickstrom. Managements are also included in parentheses.  The addresses of the facilities are listed for each location at Narconon Reviews (for instance Narconon of Northern California, Narconon Watsonville, Vista Bay (Watsonville), and Redwood Cliffs.

I have a good use for police departments on Narconon Reviews also, and hadn't gotten around to looking them all up yet, so I hope this effort will be successful.

Edit: It may in some cases be the county police department you need to go for, instead of the city, depending on whether the NN is within city limits or not.  Counties are also listed on the Location pages (as above with address) for each Narconon.

Eufala PD is not listed on that site.
64 Memorial Drive
Eufala, OK 74432

Pittsburg County SO (Sheriff Kerns) or McAlester PD may be your next best bets, but Colin could verify.

Ugg. It did help me size up the situation here, which is - Arrowhead is gonna be tough one to nail down. What with all the business names, screwy addresses and jurisdictions. So I plotted a map for prioritizing:

https://www.google.com/maps/d/edit?mid=zFgpFEaPlMpg.kS-SflDPHK40

I am attempting to hit this stuff in a half-assed order of shortest distance + type of agency: so closes agencies as the crow flies first (police departments), then EMS, and eventually the Sheriff depts. There will be a group PM sent to anyone that piped up ITT to keep ya'all in the loop on where you can see my work in progress.

Correction - In Oklahoma, EMS services are apparently privately owned businesses that are subcontractors of country agencies. So I might not be able to hit those directly.

Trivia question:

Setting Narconon Arrowhead aside for the time being, which of the remaining cult rehabs still in operation has the most lawsuits currently pending against them?

Wonder if Arrowhead State Park rangers ever had any interaction with the rehab or those that worked there or possibly fled onto park land?

S'ok, since I'm not real savvy with keeping track of which rehab is where and operating under which alias, just to make sure I'm acquiring the right target...

This would be the SoCal "Fresh Start" facility that has a physical address in Warner Springs, CA currently using the name "Sunshine Summit Lodge" and aka known as "JLB Ranch" ?

From Narconon Reviews:
Quote
Narconon Southern California is now operating under the name Narconon Fresh Start. It is the legal owner of several Narconon facilities, which operate under the following names: JLB Ranch, Sunshine Summit Lodge, Narconon San Diego, Narconon Warner Springs, and Huntington Harbor House. It also operated Narconon Newport Beach, which was closed in February of 2010.

Also, Narconon Lone Star Victory Ranch (Narconon Southern California/Fresh Start)

See EC's cheat sheet, posted ITT, in case I missed any.

Thanks mefree!

Actually, that's what I was doing because my next steps start with using the city/state to find possible law enforcement agencies, then move on to using the actual address to dial in on which one and/or draft the FOIA request letter(s).

And since there was more than one Narconon Southern California in EC's cheat, I just wanted to make absolutely certain I had the all-important first piece of info (the right city) identified for proceeding with my next target (based on which rehab after Arrowhead has most pending lawsuits).

I should have explained the cheat sheet better.  The names in parentheses are the managing organization.  For instance, Fresh Start (which used to be called Narconon Southern California) runs or ran the following individual Narconons (which have multiple names they go or have gone by):

Huntington Harbor House

Narconon Newport Beach (closed)

JLB Ranch

Sunshine Summit Lodge aka Narconon Warner Springs aka Narconon San Diego

Narconon Fort Collins aka A Life Worth Living aka A Life Worth Saving aka Narconon Colorado aka Fort Collins New Life Center aka New Life Retreat

Rainbow Canyon Recovery aka Narconon Nevada aka Rainbow Canyon Retreat aka Rainbow Ranch

Narconon Lone Star Victory Ranch

I know it's confusing, and, I believe, deliberately so.  Did this clarify things?
