Crime Line doubles cash reward for reporting drunken drivers

The Juneau Crime Line is doubling their cash reward for those who report drunken drivers over the holiday season.

The nonprofit organization usually offers $100 to people who report drunken drivers who are then arrested.

Lt. Kris Sell of the Juneau Police Department said that amount will be doubled for those who report drunken drivers, who are then arrested, from Dec. 13 to Jan. 13, 2014.

“Crime Line is committed to having a holiday season with no tragedies associated with people driving while intoxicated,” Sell said in a statement.

Crime Line often partners with the Juneau Police Department to aid in their investigations.

Sell asks that if anyone believes they are eligible for such a reward to call the JPD at 500-0600 and ask to speak to the Investigations Unit Supervisor.

This is the first year Crime Line has upped the reward for the holiday season, said Crime Line Board Member Robin Paul.

“We hope this extra emphasis will encourage folks to be more conscious of the dangers of driving under the influence this holiday season,” Paul said.

All funds for the Crime Line’s cash reward programs come from donations from individuals, businesses in the community and other nonprofits, Paul added.
