Former detective shares thoughts on crime, personal safety

Former Anchorage Police Department detective Glen Klinkhart raises awareness and the measures the people of Alaska should take in keeping themselves safe in their community.

The important talk comes after a recent spike in murders in Anchorage, putting many of the community on edge. But Klinkhart reminds people it’s all about how you keep yourself safe that will ease their worries.


“Klinkhart – author of the crime memoir “Finding Bethany” about his investigation into the 2003 murder of Bethany Correira – also shared a couple common-sense tips for avoiding danger, such as downloading phone apps designed to act like a “dead man’s switch” in case of a dangerous encounter. Other applications – such as findmyiphone, burnerapp (which allows phone calls to be routed through alternate numbers), and the Hiya caller ID app – can also help people stay safe,” reported the Chugiak Eagle River Star.
