Juneau police are planning enhanced patrols for Memorial Day weekend.
Lt. David Campbell says 13 additional officers will work Friday through Monday, covering the entire city and borough road system. This is also graduation weekend for students at Juneau high schools.
“We’re going to have quite a few officers on duty for the entire weekend, not only in town but also out the road, where people tend to congregate and party,” Campbell says.
JPD’s Mobile Incident Command vehicle will be parked out the road past Amalga Harbor all weekend and will be staffed 24 hours a day, he says.
In addition, Juneau Crime Line is increasing its reward for reporting drunk drivers from $100 to $200 for the last two weekends of May.
