By the time he was 15, Matt Dubois knew he wanted to be a police officer. Now, after 12 years with the Juneau Police Department, he’s a sergeant in his hometown.
In his first year with the department, Dubois earned a Lifesaving medal after performing CPR on a man. In 2009, he became a field training officer and joined the JPD SWAT team. In 2012, he was presented the Medal of Valor. In 2015, he was promoted to the Criminal Investigations Unit. During his time with the CIU, he became part of the Alaska Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) task force and eventually the FBI’s ICAC task force.
Prior to joining the department, Dubois served in the Alaska Army National Guard from 2000-2006 and served in the U.S. supporting Operation Noble Eagle and later in Baghdad in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. He also joined the Juneau Citizen’s Patrol and served on the Juneau Crime Line board, serving on both organizations for seven years.
