The Reel Life: Lawlessness and mayhem edition
1 Aug 2017
Sand Point is a small community of about 1,000 people, with a few hundred more in the summer. As a result, when we say "the entire police force" we mean four people—three officers and the police chief.
The first officer to quit did so because his military spouse was transferred out of state, which is fair enough. He had no way of knowing he was starting a trend.
Two of the officers were a married couple, and they quit simultaneously due to personal issues.
This left the police chief with no officers to be chief of, and a previously planned monthlong vacation to Scotland on his calendar. In light of the month he'd had, the police chief decided he really did need that vacation, and decided to take it with the understanding that his job would not be waiting for him when he got back.
Despite fears that having no police force at peak tourism season would mean lawlessness and chaos, things in Sand Point have apparently been pretty chill, since everyone's been keeping busy fishing. The town has also been in contact with the Alaska State Troopers, in case they need any policing done on short notice.
The town was only completely without local law enforcement for about a week; they've hired an interim police chief from Washington State, who is handling things until they can find more permanent hires.
Until then, the town council would appreciate it if everyone just kept fishing peacefully and didn't do any crimes, OK?
