Promoting Professionalism in the Last Frontier

The Alaska Association of Chiefs of Police was established as a voice representing all law enforcement executives, and it is our mission to enhance the quality and effectiveness of Alaska's criminal justice system.  We hope to accomplish this by providing our members access to a professional network of law enforcement executives; by providing training, mentoring, and professional assistance; and by providing some useful tools to assist Alaska's law enforcement administrators become better leaders and managers. In addition, our association endeavors to monitor the State of Alaska legislative process and to speak on behalf of our membership on relevant issues.

Our members are police chiefs and executives from all areas of law enforcement in the State of Alaska.  Alaska is an enormous state where most of our communities are not connected by a road system, and where our law enforcement community faces challenges unique to the "Last Frontier".  With many agencies having severely limited resources, we all endeavor to work together in positive partnerships to accomplish our goals.  It is our belief that by working together as we do, we can accomplish a multitude of tasks and problem solving much more effectively.
