Q. How many sworn positions does your deparment have?
Dear Juneau Resident,
The Juneau Police Department has 53 sworn positions, this includes the chief to newest police officer, who is currently attending the academy in Sitka. Four of those sworn positions are vacant and hiring is underway.
Dispatch is in much worse shape for staffing. The unit is authorized to fifteen, needs them all, and has ten.
