“Congratulations to the first class of 2022 graduating from the Alaska Law Enforcement Training Academy,” Governor Mike Dunleavy said. “Serving Alaskans through public safety is an honorable job. I appreciate these motivated people who want to make Alaska a safer and better place to live.

Graduate recruits have completed more than 1,000 hours of training during 17 weeks of Basic Law Enforcement Training in Alaska. Schooling included intensive instruction in law enforcement topics, physical fitness, and numerous scenario-based exercises designed to prepare entry-level police officers and soldiers for successful law enforcement careers in Alaska.

“These recruits should be proud of the work they have done to successfully complete this intensive training,” said Department of Public Safety Commissioner James Cockrell. “The Alaska Law Enforcement Training Academy produces some of the best law enforcement officers in the country. Officers of this class will join a proud tradition of service that protects Alaskans in our great state. »

Fullback recruits attended an abbreviated eight-week academy.

After graduation, the 20 Trooper recruits will continue their training at the academy for an additional week. Trooper Basic training includes customized and advanced training in Fish and Wildlife Investigations, Boating Safety, Survival, Commercial Fishing Law Enforcement, Search and Rescue, and Stress Management critical. Recruits also participate in additional scenario-based training.

Upon completion of Trooper Basic, recruits will head to their first duty assignments in Fairbanks, Soldotna, or the Mat-Su Valley, and begin a 12-week field training and evaluation program. All Trooper recruits are expected to develop to the point where they can perform all law enforcement duties independently. If successful, Trooper recruits will be promoted to the rank of Trooper at the end of their probationary period, usually 12 months from the start of the academy.
