Anchorage Police Chief Chris Tolley announced he’s stepping down at a news conference Monday inside the Anchorage Police Department’s headquarters.
The Anchorage Police Department announced its new targeted crime plan Thursday. It focuses on getting into the community and developing relationships. The department will expand its foot patrols beyond downtown and into Mountain View, Fairview and Spenard.
The shooting will be investigated by the state’s Office of Special Prosecutions to assess whether the two officers were justified in using deadly force.
