The Alaska Peace Officer Memorial chronicles the many brave Deputy U. Marshals who died in the line of duty in early Alaska.
The Division of Alaska State Troopers personnel are the general police arm of the agency.
They were commissioned to only enforce traffic laws and were not police officers per se. The legislature refused to make them police officers until the agency was changed to Territorial Police and additional personnel were hired from the ranks of the U. Other titles were the Alaska State Police after statehood in 1959, and ultimately the Alaska State Troopers in 1967.
They were eventually deputized as special deputy U. In a unique pilot program, AK Troopers even drove ambulances as patrol vehicles in the 1960s, serving as both ambulance and law enforcement service to remote areas.
The trooper division is divided into five lettered detachments, corresponding to geographic regions of the state, for general policing.
The division also contains several bureaus: Alaska Bureau of Investigation (ABI), Alaska State Fire Marshal Office, Alaska Bureau of Alcohol and Drug Enforcement (ABADE), Alaska Bureau of Highway Patrol, and Alaska Bureau of Judicial Services.
This includes the only metropolitan police agency in Alaska, the Anchorage Police Department with almost 500 officers.
The remaining officers are the over 300 Alaska troopers and smaller municipal agencies which have around 50 in towns like the state capital of Juneau or the second largest town in the state, Fairbanks.
The Alaska State Troopers trace their heritage back more than a century.They also assist local agencies and authorities in fire cause and origin investigations. Particular emphasis in this area is applied to rural Alaska, where many communities have exercised local option laws to restrict or ban the sale or even possession of alcohol, leading to a prevalence of "bootleging".They also investigate explosions and often work with the United States Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF). ABADE personnel are assigned to investigate drug and vice offenses, such as drug manufacturing, smuggling, illegal gambling, prostitution, child sex exploitation and human trafficking. Judicial Services officers are peace officers who perform duties traditionally associated with "bailiffs" in the lower-48 sheriff agencies: court facility security, transportation of prisoners, service of criminal and civil process, and protection of the Judiciary.Before the founding of the Troopers, law enforcement in Alaska was performed by a succession of federal agencies: first the United States Army, then the United States Navy and Revenue Cutter Service, the U. Customs Service, and finally the United States Marshals Service after a civil government was formed in 1884.The need for law enforcement became critical in the late 19th century as gold was discovered in Alaska. Prostitution, gambling, murder, rape, robbery, arson, kidnapping, aggravated assault, and claim jumping incidents were rampant.The Alaska State Troopers, officially the Division of Alaska State Troopers (AST), is the state police agency of the U. The Alaska State Troopers is a full-service law enforcement agency which handles both traffic and criminal law enforcement. It is a division of the Alaska Department of Public Safety (DPS).Alaska troopers are the most geographically extended peace officers aside from federal officers in the USA.They have little, if any local backup; within the entire State of Alaska, only about 1,300 full-time sworn law enforcement officers patrol a state 1/5th the size of the entire lower-48 and other than troopers and state park rangers, the local officers remain in their communities except in extreme emergencies.The Alaska State Troopers is also involved in apprehending fugitives as part of the Alaska Fugitive Task Force, an inter-agency collaborative of Alaska police departments that cooperates with police agencies throughout the United States and less commonly with Interpol in apprehending wanted men and women.Unlike many lower-48 states, Alaska troopers are both state troopers and game/wildlife enforcement officers.
