The local chapter of the Alaska Peace Officers Association, a statewide law enforcement nonprofit organization, will be hosting a class on winter driving at the Juneau Police Department next month.

The local chapter of the Alaska Peace Officers Association, a statewide law enforcement nonprofit organization, will be hosting a class on winter driving at the Juneau Police Department next month.

JPD Lt. Kris Sell said in a release that the class is geared toward younger drivers who might be looking forward to his or her first winter driving experience, but the class will also have helpful reminders for drivers of all ages.

Sell said there will be a question and answer session during the class, and attendees are encouraged to bring their questions about studded tires, anti-lock brake effectiveness and new car safety features.

The class will be held from 6-8 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 11, at the JPD station, 6255 Alaway Avenue. It will be taught by the APOA Capital City Chapter Vice-President Sarah Hieb, who is an accident reconstruction specialist with JPD.

Reservations are not needed.
