THE TELEPHONE IS NOT A TOY!

Don't let your kids play with the phone.
Dispatch receives 10-20 bogus calls every DAY!
Teach them how to call for help,
their name and where they are.
Also- GCI phones - SOS is 9-1-1, not the help-desk!

Drug Abuse Resistance Education

Alcohol & Drugs

Kotzebue is a "Damp" community with regard to alcohol.
Learn just how much alcohol and what kind you can bring into town per month.

Alcohol Transportation Information

You may find this eye-opening!
The only place you'll find this information spelled out in plain english!

Local Beverage Control Board


TAKE BACK YOUR VILLAGE!

Know someone dealing or transporting controlled substances?
Dial KPD, AST or our recorder:

442-3731 or 1-888-475-9559


or speak to someone at:

442-3351 (KPD) or 442-3222/1-800-789-3222 (AST)

Remember we ask for as much information as you're willing to give:
Who?, When?, Where?, What?, How much?, Method of transportation and times, etc.
You can remain anonymous, but the case will be stronger if you stand by your information with your name.

We now have a Drug and Alcohol Complaint Form (New!) you can use.
You can fill out the form in MS: Word and mail/fax/e-mail it to us,
or use it as a guide to phone the information in.

Fairbanks International Airport has an Alcohol and Drugs TipLine:

1-877 TIP4FIA (877-847-4342)

There are a lot of bicycle thefts each summer,
so have your kids chain up their bikes where-ever they leave them unattended.
Lock up your bicycle
Lock'em up!
Get the serial numbers from and a photo of all your bicycles.


Lock'em up!
There are a lot of snowmachine thefts each winter,
so chain up your snowmachine, get a throttle lock,
pull the plug wires, whatever you have to do.
Some snowmachines are recovered, but many are lost forever or found stripped.
Most machines are EASY to hot-wire, so no-one is immune! (12/04)
Also, write down the VIN number and take photos of your vehicles.

4-Wheelers are just as vulnerable, so lock them up too!
