Questions Posted to "Ask a Dispatcher"
Q. Best way to get into my car with my keys and purse locked inside? Do I have to scroll through all your questions - I hate to ask a repeat question. Unless other people aren't thise dumb...
Dear Juneau Resident,
Ouch, what a pain. One option is to call the cab companies, one of them used to do unlocks but no one here can remember which one. You could also try a Doak's lock and key. That option is probably expensive but cheaper than breaking the window.
JPD officers used to provide the courtesy of unlocking cars and some people in town remember that practice. Officers had 'slim jims' in the patrol cars. Of course the inevitable happened and the department faced a financial claim for damaging a window or door and the practice was then prohibited. The old 'slim jims' probably don't even work on the newer cars anyway.
