Police agencies in Alaska are governed by the Alaska Police Standards Council (APSC). This governing body, established by the Department of Public Safety,

  • develops training programs as needed for police agencies statewide
  • provides financial assistance to police academy programs
  • develops and funds specialized training
  • controls certification of all law enforcement in the state including correctional officers, probation/parole officers, and all police
  • conducts psychological testing and standards for testing of all new applicants
  • oversees polygraph testing of all applicants
  • makes decisions in cases of police misconduct, and
  • if found guilty of said misconduct, the APSC can revoke the certification of the officer

The Alaska Police Standards Council is governed by the Alaska Administrative Code, Title 13, Chapters 85 and 87.

As the following list will show, law enforcement in Alaska is much simpler than in many states. Naturally, this is largely because of the relatively low population. The ratio of police to population in Alaska is 1:566.35.
