The Wildlife Troopers also participate in the overall mission of the Department of Public Safety through enforcement of criminal laws and participation in search and rescue operations.

    • Premium pay for troopers assigned to special duties.

    • Relocation reimbursement ranging from $2,000 to $5,000 paid in installments for troopers that move to remote locations. (relocation also includes the movement of up to two (2) vehicles and up to 15,000 pounds of the member's household goods for in-state moves);

    • State and union negotiated wage increases;

    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?
