APD Spent Over 600 Hours on Turnagain Arm in Three Months

ANCHORAGE - The Anchorage Police Department began patrolling the Seward Highway between McHugh Creek and Ingram Creek in October 2017. Officers have spent 658 hours on the highway and made 689 traffic stops. In total they have written 531 citations, 257 of those for speeding.

“As we look at the monthly data, it seems drivers are slowing down and acknowledging a new law enforcement presence on the highway,” said APD Chief Justin Doll. “We want to ensure a safe drive for all highway users. As always our goal is not to write citations, but to change behavior.”

APD is patrolling the highway thanks to a onetime two hundred thousand dollar grant from the State of Alaska. Patrols will continue until the grant is spent, hopefully through March 2018.
