Honoring those keeping us safe

Kodiak is home to one of five Coast Guard police departments. May 15 is Peace Officer Memorial Day and National Police Week is celebrated the same week. We take the time to recognize this small group of law enforcement professionals for all that they do to keep their fellow Coast Guardsmen and local communities safe.
