Q. Hoe does JPD determine or decide what goes in the daily bulletin, what needs a press release and what doesn't?
Dear Juneau Resident,
The assumption is all cases go into the daily bulletin. JPD issues a major press release in the event of most fatalities and serious crimes along with incidents that are in public or disrupt traffic. There is some judgement used by the supervisor on duty. If you think something that was in the bulletin needs to be a press release, please provide your feedback to JPD.
