Wasilla Police Department News

As we approach Memorial Day, WPD would like to remind you to stay safe. Take a moment this weekend to remember why some of us have a 3-day weekend. Visit the Armed Forces Honor Garden at Iditapark (Corner of Nelson and Lucille St), or the Veteran's Wall of Honor by the Mat-Su Regional Hospital (off of Trunk). Memorial day is one that hits close to home for many of us, as military service is so prevalent in our jobs and lives. Thank a Gold Star family for their sacrifice. All gave some, some gave all.🇺🇸️⭐

At the beginning of shift yesterday Officer Lecours was recognized for outstanding service to our community. He was presented with a Letter of Commendation by Lieutenant Josten. Some of the letter is below: "On May 8, Officer Lecours was dispatched to a call for a male passed out behind the wheel, stopped at a traffic light. Citizens on scene had advised dispatch that the male wasn't breathing. Officer Lecours was the first responder on scene. He used his vehicle to block oncoming traffic, and without hesitation triaged the subject, determining that he had overdosed on a narcotic. The unconscious male had stopped breathing and was turning blue when Officer Lecours made contact. Officer Lecours had to immediately administer two doses of Narcan, returning the male to consciousness and life. While stabilizing the subject's neck to maintain an airway, Officer Lecours controlled and directed a group of onlookers and secured the vehicle and scene. After the subject regained consciousness, he was transported by EMS to Mat-Su Regional Medical Center for treatment. This man will live to see another day because of Officer Lecours' quick and heroic action." Thank you, Officer Lecours, for your dedication to our community. "So that others may live."

Pop Quiz: You are south bound on Main Street approaching Herning Avenue when you come across the road blocked by orange cones and a police car with all it's pretty lights going (See attached picture for reference). What do you do? 1) Turn left onto Herning Avenue 2) Turn right onto Herning Avenue 3) Yell "LLEEEEERRROOOOOYYYYYY JJJEENNNNNNKKKKKIIIINNNNNNSSSS!!!" while driving around the police vehicle and cones; directly into an active collision investigation scene. Hint: There is only one wrong answer. Please don't be that person. If police have a road blocked, it's for a reason. We will stop and cite you if you do this. It puts us and others in danger when you ignore a clearly blocked intersection.

Echo PUPdate from Officer Buzzard: "Echo is performing very well and continues to improve in all disciplines. She is like a bull in a china cabinet most of the time and would go through the wall instead of the door if she thought it was faster. She only has one speed; as fast as possible. It seems a crash helmet would go good with her vest." I had some background info on Echo answered by Officer Buzzard the last time we e-mailed. Echo is a year and a half old and is from Holland. She should feel right at home in Alaska this summer!

If you are celebrating 4/20 this weekend, do it responsibly. Know the law. Driving High is a DUI. Secure your snacks or a designated driver before you consume cannabis, don’t risk your life and the lives of others over a Taco Bell run. http://dhss.alaska.gov/dph/Director/Documents/marijuana/MJFactSheet_DUI.pdf

It's that time of year again! Studded tires off May 1st!

Have you thought about joining our MATCOM team? We are recruiting for an Emergency Dispatcher Trainee! Details are listed in the link below:

WE CAN'T HELP YOU, IF WE CAN'T FIND YOU... From the moment you dial 911, time is of the essence! Make your address visible at the end of your driveway and on your home so emergency services can find you. Wasilla Municipal Code is as follows: 12.08.090 Posting of assigned street addresses. A. It is the responsibility of the owner of a building to affix and maintain the assigned street address number on the building in such a position as to be plainly visible and legible from the street fronting or orienting the property, and on a corner lot, facing the street named in the address assigned to the building. The numbers shall contrast with their background, and shall be not less than four inches in height. B. Where a building on which an assigned street address number must be affixed is situated a considerable distance from its street frontage or obscured by trees, shrubs, etc., the assigned street address number for the building shall be affixed and maintained on a plainly visible manmade or natural feature that is not more than fifty (50) feet from the street named in the address assigned to the building. (Ord. 09-47 § 2, 2009: prior code § 17.01.040) If you live in the Borough (outside city limits) contact Stephanie Bishop (stephanie.bishop@matsugov.us) about getting signs made. Borough Code recommends that numbers are 4" tall for maximum visibility.

This is a fantastic video that highlights some of what our MATCOM team does. Thank you for all you do! #NationalTelecomunicatorsWeek #WeAre911

WPD has been made aware of a new scam targeting local people. This scam spoofs (fakes) the WPD main line (352-5401) number as the caller and the voice on the other end threatens the victim with arrest or jail time. Wasilla Police Department will never call you and demand payment for any warrants. Ever. We don't even take credit cards for record requests or dog licenses. Never give financial information or card information to someone you don't know over the phone. We won't call you before coming to arrest you for a warrant, we will just come escort you to pretrial in person. If you have been a victim of this scam please contact us. Again, law enforcement (AST, WPD, US Marshalls, FBI, IRS, any of them) will NEVER call and demand payment in exchange for removing a warrant or under threat of arrest.
