Mike Dunleavy on Crime
Attack crime with aggressive response
The explosive growth in violent and property crime that Alaska has experienced in recent years demands an aggressive response.
Alaska now leads the nation in almost every category of crime, making our state the most dangerous in the country.

Let's shut down crime instead of sweeping it under the rug
I want to grow business in the state but there's one business we have to shut down, and it's crime. We have a growing criminal enterprise here that is not just stealing cars--it's stealing cars to do other crimes, it's stealing cars for chop shops and
things like that.
The domestic violence, sexual assault issue that we championed when I was lieutenant governor has been kind of swept under the rug and we still have the worst rates in the country.
I've experienced that sort of thing in our family and it's something that happens in many kinds of families and we're not giving it the attention that we need to solve it, and even if that solution takes a generation, like
Mothers Against Drunk Driving did or helping us understand that fetal alcohol syndrome comes if you see a pregnant woman drinking, we have to keep up the heat on that issue. There's not enough federal cooperation on crime.
