Officer Goertz enjoys the breadth of his position with the Police Department. It's a diverse job, mixing Corrections, Police and EMS dispatch, training new officers, and making use of his PC computer skills as Assistant LAN Administrator, and KPD Web-designer. Don likes to help people, so it's a good position to do just that. Don believes though it's sad that they are here, the prisoners under his care should be treated fairly and with respect, and in turn, they respect him as well. He attended and completed the Municipal Corrections Academy in December, 1999.
Outside of work, Don enjoys medieval history through an organization called the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA), and started a local branch here in Kotzebue, both for himself and to educate others with similar interests. He's traveled throughout Alaska and has visited most of the U.S., as well as Europe and other travel destinations. Otherwise, he's usually found surfing the net, working on his other web-sites, or buying (too much) stuff on ebay.com.
