U.S. Attorney General William Barr declared a law enforcement emergency in Alaska after vising rural communities that are facing some of the highest rates of violence without any kind of law enforcement. He is also pledging millions of dollars in emergency funds. On "Talk of Alaska," former state Public Safety Commissioner Walt Monegan and tribal rights attorney Lloyd Miller discussed Barr’s visit and its impact on the future of public safety in Alaska.
