    Question: Is the poly a pass/fail or is it used as an employment consideration? Spending a few thousand dollars to process (NY) would really hurt, especially if it comes down to a coin toss.

      The polygraph interview and examination are a critical portion of the hiring process that is evaluated as deception detected or not detected based on the scope of that individual examination. Ultimately the residents of the State of Alaska demand that our Troopers be the most honest/trustworthy individuals placed in this position of authority. In short, no portion of the hiring process is a coin toss. The applicant is either an honest/trustworthy individual or not.

        That does not really answer my question, but thanks for the response. I'm going to assume it's a standard pass/fail. Good luck on your recruitment.

          Congratulations to all the successful applicants that have been selected to continue with the hiring process in Anchorage, AK in January 2013. As a reminder, although the minimum physical fitness requirements are posted as they are, applicants should be prepared to exceed these minimums in order to stand out among others in this competitive hiring process.

              But what the heck, a year from now I'll have creds that say "retired" and a drawer full of Early Bird menus.

                For those applicants that have not been contacted by the Recruitment Staff in reference to the Spring 2013 hiring process, you should expect to receive written notice of your status sometime near the end of January 2013. Please ensure the Recruitment Staff has your most updated contact information by calling toll free 1-877-AKTROOP (258-7667).

                      Federal Agent Lateral

                      Sir,

                      I have a question or two about the lateral program the AST offer. I am a Border Patrol Agent with 4 years of service on the Southwest border. I notice that in the description for the lateral program it mentions FBI,DEA,ATF ext. Now my question is are those Federal agencies the only ones you will accept in the lateral? Or will you accept a Border Patrol Agent? I also have one more question. With the lateral program would I need to travel to AK for any type of testing or anything like what the recruits have too?

                        Our version of POST is called Alaska Police Standards Council (APSC), under the direction of Kelly Alzaharna, the Executive Director. APSC determines which academies meet the Alaska standards for certification. She can be contacted at 907-465-5523.

                            This doesn't really answer the question. It was a legitimate question, as the polygraph has been known to be inaccurate and sometimes fail someone who was otherwise answering questions honestly. A good background investigator doesn't use the polygraph as a 'make or break' for a candidate, instead they examine the totality of the circumstances.

                              Correct. Border Patrol is terribly shorthanded due to our inability to recruit. 60% fail rate on polygraph for us. I have had five friends fail, four of whom were current cops or exiting the military after honorable service holding secret or better clearances. Polys are jokes, and that is a fact, not an opinion backed by the fact they are inadmissible in court.

                              That being said, would be a sweet job. Can't imagine traveling THAT far (a lot different than flying to DC for example) to fail a poly and know in your heart you are an honest person who told no lies on the poly exam.

                                "in honor there is hope" is the most OG motto ever though, love it. if the job is even remotely like the show, it would be a dream job. Good luck to those that apply.
