      University of Alaska Anchorage Justice Center (University of Alaska Anchorage Justice Center, 1995-10)
      Results of a statewide public opinion survey indicate that, contrary to the commonly portrayed perspective, anxiety about crime in Alaska is not particularly high. Moreover, many residents feel that crime levels in their communities have stayed the same or are actually decreasing. Over 600 Alaska residents in five regions throughout the state (Anchorage, Fairbanks, Southeast, Valdez/Kenai/Mat-Su, and rural Alaska) were surveyed by telephone for this study.

    • Bridging Justice Communities: A Professional Workshop Curriculum for Alaska Natives

      University of Alaska Anchorage Justice Center (University of Alaska Anchorage Justice Center, 1998-12)
      Despite the complicated legal and justice questions which present themselves regularly in the life of the Alaska Native community, Native employment in justice system positions — in the bureaucracies and agencies which administer the state and federal justice systems — is low. The program outlined in this document presents a twelve-day to two-week educational workshop for Alaska Native participants focusing on opportunities for careers in the justice system.
    • North Slope Department of Public Safety Community Survey

      ; University of Alaska Anchorage Justice Center (University of Alaska Anchorage Justice Center, 1994-03-23)
      This report presents the results of a public opinion survey of North Slope Borough residents conducted in summer 1993 regarding crime and public safety issues and attitudes toward and satisfaction with the North Slope Borough Department of Public Safety. The survey comprised a fifty-seven item questionnaire which was administered to 165 residents of the North Slope communities of Point Hope, Point Lay, Kaktovik, Anaktuvuk Pass, Wainwright, Nuiqsut, Atqasuk, and Barrow. Some conclusions can be drawn from the data; however, because the overall number of responses is low, individual figures should be viewed with caution.

    • Public Safety and Policing in Alaska Native Villages: Component Three of Alaska Public Safety Project

      University of Alaska Anchorage Justice Center (University of Alaska Anchorage Justice Center, 1995-10)
      One hundred and seventy-five residents in 28 predominately Alaska Native communities throughout the state were interviewed on-site to obtain information for assessing and improving public safety operations and services in rural villages of Alaska. Throughout the communities surveyed, state justice system personnel were viewed as being unconcerned about local governance arrangements, practices, and problems, and insensitive to values, feelings, and priorities of village residents and officials. Many villages surveyed were found to have established, without support from the Alaska justice system, their own policies and methods for dealing with crime and social control problems. Despite the importance of these extralegal local practices to villages, in general they seem to be unrecognized or ignored by justice system employees serving in the communities.
