(a) A peace officer, upon issuing a citation to an alleged violator under AS 12.25.180 , shall deposit the original or a copy of the citation with a court having jurisdiction over the alleged offense. If the citation charges an offense under a municipal ordinance for which a scheduled fine has been established, the peace officer shall deposit the original or a copy of the citation with the clerk of the municipality that issued the citation, unless otherwise provided under rule adopted by the supreme court.

(b) Upon the deposit of the original or a copy of the citation with a court having jurisdiction over the alleged offense, the original or copy of the citation may be disposed of only by trial in the court or other official action by a magistrate or judge of the court.

(c) It is unlawful and official misconduct for a peace officer or other officer or public employee to dispose of a citation or copies of it or of the record of the issuance of the citation in a manner other than as required in this section.

(d) The chief administrative officer of each law enforcement agency shall require each officer in the agency to return a copy of every citation issued by the officer to an alleged violator of a law or ordinance and all copies of every citation that has been spoiled or upon which any entry has been made and not issued to an alleged violator.

(e) The chief administrative officer of each law enforcement agency shall also maintain in connection with every citation issued by an officer in the agency a record of the disposition of the charge by the court in which the original or copy of the citation was deposited.
