Ask a Dispatcher
Q. I was wondering why some officers don't seem to have to follow traffic laws. At 5:20 a.m., I saw a police car get off Egan Dr by Walmart and go down the off ramp. Not only did the officer not stop at the stop sign, he barely even slowed down before he turned left toward Walmart. Then, the same thing at the Walmart traffic light, barely slowing at the red light. The car was going so fast I could get close enough to see the license plate, but it did turn down the road to the police station. I was disappointed to see this kind of driving out of someone who enforces traffic laws and is supposed to be an example to the rest of us.
Dear Juneau Resident,
Ouch. I am very sorry that the incident happened and it should not have happened. This complaint is being forwarded to the lieutenant who supervises patrol. Thank you for letting us know what you saw and please contact us again if you have another report. If you are able, please call in as soon as you can since that makes it easier to figure out who was involved.
