Congratulations to the 21 Lemon Creek Correctional officers who recently attended and became certified Institutional Investigators.
The two day, 16-hour Institutional Investigator class was designed to provide correctional officers investigative guidelines, knowledge, and skills in order to affect prosecutable criminal cases and to assist Alaska State Troopers and DOC Investigators to properly preserve, document, and investigate crimes within DOC institutions.
Besides a written examination, investigators had to develop a plan to properly preserve and document the scene, and properly seize all of the potential evidence.
Some of the feedback from the students included:
“Best class I have taken in 10 years.”
“Very engaging. Kept the topic interesting and the class never became boring.”
“Loved this class!”
“Very interactive. Working through the tough cases was very informative.”
Instructors will be continuing visiting institutions around the state in order to help even more officers learn investigative techniques.

Thank you for your service, dedication, and committment to making our institutions safe and secure for inmates and staff.
The Alaska Department of Corrections Lemon Creek Correctional Center Wellness Committee held their First Annual Family Easter Egg Hunt at Twin Lakes playground in Juneau this past weekend.
They had a spectacular turnout where over fifty children and their families searched for Easter eggs in the time honored tradition.
The LCCC Wellness Committee, led by President Lydia O’Leary, spent an entire week loading over 1,100 eggs with candy and toy surprises!
The event was very well received and there are already plans being made for next year.
Lydia O’Leary would like to give a special “Thank You” to Ron Shriver, Bonnie Webster, Mary Ann Headings, Virginia Behrends, Bob Cordle, Evgenia Golofeeva, Regan Tweedy, Kenneth Hoff, Travis Brososky, Keith Brososky Jr, and of course all the family and friends who came out to enjoy the fun.
Thank You Senator Pete Kelly, Representative Bryce Edgmon, Senator Cathy Giessel, and Rep. Dave Talerico for coming to Lemon Creek Correctional to hold an awesome praise and worship service for the inmates and for showering them with love and inspiration to succeed.
