Coalition Members Support New Public Safety Action Plan and Will Work to Secure Additional Resources to Address Crime in Alaska

October 30, 2017

Juneau – Speaker of the House Bryce Edgmon (D-Dillingham) issued the following statement in response to today’s release of a Public Safety Action Plan for the State of Alaska by Alaska Governor Bill Walker. The plan is intended to address growing concerns about increasing rates of crime in Alaska.

“The members of the Alaska House Majority Coalition support the effort to prioritize state resources to respond to the increase in crime. We will be working closely with Governor Walker and his team to make sure they have every available resource to make sure Alaskans can feel safe in their homes and businesses,” said Speaker Edgmon. “I am especially pleased to see that this plan calls for cooperation with Alaska’s tribes, health care providers, and local police departments who are all on the front-lines of crime in Alaska. The only way we can address this public safety crisis is to have all of Alaska’s public safety stakeholders pulling in the same direction and with the same goal in mind.”
