In Alaska, many communities are only accessible by boat or air. That presents a challenge for ensuring public safety when back-up or help could be hours away. The Anchorage Daily News reports 1 in 3 Alaska villages lacks adequate law enforcement. We’ll discuss how to ensure the safety of all Alaskans, both on and off the road system on the next Talk of Alaska.
