    ANCHORAGE ALASKA HIRING 22 POLICE OFFICERS

    - No College Degree Required-

    Anchorage, Alaska is a modern city that still has that small town feel. From great shopping, schools, and unlimited outdoor activities, we have something for everyone. APD is hiring police officers for an academy scheduled for November 24, 2008. Our academy is a non-residential program and you will be paid while attending the academy. The starting hourly wage for new recruits is $27.02 and for lateral officers $28.45.

    The APD Recruiting Unit will be traveling in September to Minnesota and Michigan. Details on dates and locations are listed below. Those interested in testing in one of these locations need to submit a request to test form with the city name you plan on testing in noted on the top of the request to test form.

    Normally out of state applicants have to make two separate one week trips to Anchorage to complete the hiring process. By testing at one of the locations below, the applicant will reduce the number of trips they have to make to Anchorage down to one. This testing process is to hire for an academy anticipated to start November 24th 2008.

    If you have any questions contact Officer Steve Haas by email at [email protected] or by phone 907-786-2463 or Sgt. Couturier by email at [email protected] or by phone at 907-786-2444.

    The testing schedule will be the same each day. The successfull applicant should plan on a two to three day process. Applicants passing the written testing will be scheduled for an interview. For the interview the applicants must bring their driver's license, a completed (and notorized) background questionnaire (available under the forms link), most recent evaluation from their employer, original or certified copy of high school diploma or GED, original or certified copy of DD form 214 (if applicable). Although advance registration is preferred, walk-ins will be accepted if they meet the requirements.

    Applicants that succesfully interview will complete an extensive psych written battery. APD staff will notify individual applicants of their invitation to attend the final processing in Anchorage. Those applicants should plan travel to Anchorage, Alaska for final processing from October 10th through the 17th. Processing in Anchorage will include physical agility testing, psych assessment, medical evaluation, and polygraph examination. Further information will be provided during the briefing.

          Its a defined contribution plan, you contribute 8%, city matches with 5% and you choose what type of funds your money is invested in (similar to a 401K plan). We also have an optional 401K with 1:1 matching funds up to $2,000 and an optional 457 deferred comp plan.

              I would love to go to San Diego, only concern is we are not sure how the whole Southern Cal weather/beach life would compare to the more outdoorsy Alaska lifestyle. It was a possibility when considering trips but we chose to return to the mid west region.

                  Do you know how many Border Patrol Agents live and work here that work 100% in an "outdoorsy Alaska lifestyle?" Might be worth looking into.

                  Just my little 2 cents.

                    That's colder than it is here, it was 51 degrees when I left the house at 6am.

                    We usually get about a thousand applicants a year, maybe a little less.

                      Not really sure about the border patrol guys. I know that they are here in town and in fact I will see their recruiter at our state fair which starts today. I would imagine that there are a fair number of them working near the Canadian border and probably in places like Kodiak, Seward, etc. Can't see them being assigned to too remote of an area.
