JPD provides support services following Saturday’s shooting

Posted: April 10, 2012 - 11:50am

The Juneau Police Department is providing voluntary counseling services to officers who were involved in or affected by Saturday night’s shooting.

Former Juneau police lieutenant Troy A. Wilson took aim and fired about 75 to 100 shots at police officers Saturday evening when they responded to a call at his home. Wilson surrendered after a five-hour standoff and has since been charged with eight felonies, including attempted murder.

A counselor was available at police headquarters Monday, and staff was able to sign up for individual appointments, JPD spokeswoman Cindee Brown-Mills said Tuesday.

JPD also began hosting group sessions on “Group Critical Incident Stress Management” Tuesday afternoon, Brown-Mills said.

Brown-Mills also said JPD has a volunteer chaplain available to staff. JPD employees have also been encouraged to use the city’s Employee Assistance Program if necessary.

Wilson was a JPD officer for 17 years. He is currently being held in jail on a $500,000 cash bond, and is scheduled to appear in Juneau District Court today at 1:15 p.m.
