Ask a Dispatcher
Q. JPD, please… 8:20 pm, sunny day, June 26, 2014. We live on Irwin Street, downtown. There were again two bikers (sports bike and a Harley or something) going up the street past cemetery just now, doing at least 50mph in a 20mph zone. They do this every sunny day. They also come down the street towards 12th Street after 5pm and come back in the evening, always hella'booking down the Irwin Street where many high schoolers and younger kids walk. It is only a matter of time until they hit a kid or an egressing vehicle from one of the parking lots on Irwin. Can you please station an on-foot officer with a radar on a sunny evening 4:30pm - 9pm on Irwin St. downtown, by the cemetery - once in a few sunny days' streaks? And another officer with a patrol car somewhere on one of the parking lots near the cemetery so they can pull the (bad, bad people on bikes) over and give them a massive ticket or a bundle? Thank you very much! Residents of Irwin Street, Downtown Juneau.
Dear Juneau Resident,
Your complaint has been referred to the patrol officers and assigned downtown officers. If you could get a license plate on any of the motorcycles, that would be helpful to call in as well.
