Community Involvement

Serving the Community

Community Service crews provide services to local government agencies such the Olympic Natural Resource Center, the Quillayute Valley School District, Quillayute Valley Park and Recreation District, and non–profit organizations such as the Forks Museum and West End Youth League. Items designed and built by the Woods Products Shop, crafted with donated tools and materials, are donated to the Quillayute Valley Scholarship Auction, Cherish Our Children, and others.

Sustainable Communities

Olympic Corrections Center supports the Department's goal of working for sustainable, safe communities. The facility consistently looks for ways to save energy, reduce waste, and become more efficient in its plant operations. Sustainability is also demonstrated through the compost and recycling programs, in addition to transitioning to energy saving appliances and installing water meters.

Art in Public Places

The Art in Public Places (AIPP) program facilitates the acquisition, placement, and stewardship of artwork in state-funded building projects throughout Washington. The Washington State Legislature established the AIPP program in 1974 to acquire artwork for educational institutions and state agencies, funded by ½ of 1 percent of the state’s portion of construction costs. Today, the State Art Collection includes more than 4,700 artworks.

Superintendent Scott Speer

Scott Speer began his career with the department in 1987 at McNeil Island Corrections Center as a Correctional Officer, where he worked in the segregation unit and was an active member of the McNeil Island Corrections Center (MICC) Emergency Response Team. Scott contributed to staff development by facilitating Control Tactics and First Aid classes. He promoted to a Correctional Sergeant in 1992 at Olympic Corrections Center and has worked through the ranks of Correctional Unit Supervisor, Correctional Lieutenant, and was promoted to Correctional Program Manager in 2018. Scott has served as the Interim Superintendent for the past eight months. During this time, he has reestablished programs, security routines and community relationships.

Throughout his 35-year career in corrections, Scott has led many committees, projects and teams. He has been a long-standing member of the statewide Emergency Management Committee, participating and leading Critical Incident Reviews and Emergency Management audits. Scott was also an original member of the Statewide Security Advisory Committee and established the facility’s accountability and current safety security process. Scott has served as the Facility Incident Commander, managing much of the facility’s response to COVID-19, since 2020.

Scott took on a huge role with the facility safety initiatives by reviewing all incoming individuals prior to their arrival at OCC for significant security concerns. He is largely responsible for developing key relationships with the local law enforcement agencies and the surrounding community. Scott maintains a people-centered focus, working to develop staff and assisting the population for successful reentry.”
