Juneau Police Department
Public Information Officers
Information Releases are created for any case that the Patrol Shift Supervisor or Public Information Officer believes needs further explanation beyond the Daily Bulletin post. Cases that have an Information Release will also have an entry in the Daily Bulletin. All factual allegations contained in JPD releases are based upon preliminary investigation and are subject to change or clarification as the investigation continues. Any charges reported in the release are merely accusations, and all persons named are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty. Public Information Officers must balance the competing interests of the public's right to know and an individual's right to privacy. State law is the basis for JPD's policy to try and balance these competing interests.
