AK National Guard investigation survey almost finished

By MJ Thim 7:15 PM May 19, 2014
ANCHORAGE –

An important survey in the investigation of sexual assault reports by soldiers with the Alaska National Guard will be finished in two weeks.

Gov. Sean Parnell said the command climate survey will be finished about June 1.

He said the National Guard bureau is in its second phase of the investigation and is still working on gathering information.

“It’s about making sure that we have an investigation process, whether in the guard or any other workplace, where people are safe,” he said.

Parnell requested a federal investigation of the Alaska National Guard in February due to a high number of sexual assault reports within its ranks.
