Questions Posted to "Ask a Dispatcher"


Q. Young people have been calling our house with a "recreation survey." The questions lead us to believe they are casing houses to find out when people are gone so that they might break in. Is this a known scam or part of a school project or what?


Dear Juneau Resident,

This appears to be the first report to come into JPD about the activity so we can't say if the survey is legitimate or not. You are smart to be suspicious. JPD advises residents to keep information about when their home is empty as confidential as possible. If you get another call please ask the person questions about who is sponsoring or supervising the survey. It would be great if you could call JPD with any more information you can gather. If the person hangs up you can assume the worst. Hopefully someone reading this question and answer can provide additional information.

Thanks for letting us know about this activity. JPD would like to keep an eye on it.
