Ask a Dispatcher
Q. what is the percentage of anglo police officers do you have
Dear Juneau Resident,
That is a difficult question that probably can't be accurately answered unless each officer was willing to answer questions about his or her heritage. One can't tell by appearances so it would take some work and probably officer cooperation to know the racial makeup of JPD officers. It seems questions of race affiliation are usually optional on hiring forms. I know one officer who talks of freezing at that point because several boxes apply and how do you decide which one is the most 'true'? Those darned forms say to pick one...does one lean toward Mom's side of the family or Dad's side of the family? You could try and get at those boxes on the hiring forms by calling CBJ Human Resources and see if that agency will share what race affliation current officers claimed on hiring forms.
