This is not an explicit list of crimes in Kodiak. It should not be assumed that all crimes not in the Felony Code are legal and these offenses can also result in dire consequences by judicial trial. This is just a tool to give the Police flexibility to make decisions on the spot when the facts of a case are clear.
