POLICE INVESTIGATION: The Juneau Police Department is often times the first organization notified of a death. When a call comes into the JPD, officers are dispatched to the location to investigate. JPD has to collect information and identify witnesses. This may include: interviewing family members, taking pictures, reviewing social media accounts and recording critical data. This is a procedural process that occurs after each death.
