    Chs1993,

    Are you looking at applying to one of the departments in Alaska? If so what department are you looking at?

    The NSB has an area of about 89,000 square miles, making it the largest municipality in the U.S. It's larger than Utah (85,000 square miles) and Idaho (83,372 square miles), but it's only 15% of the State of Alaska, which has an area of 591,004 square miles!

    It's the North Slope Borough Police Dept. It's basically an area about the size of Oregon that covers the entire north end of Alaska.

    Hopefully I will be joining them soon but there is one NSB Police Officer who posts on here if you have any specific questions.

    Ak Flyer,

    In my eye that is the only "downfall" Cold doesn't really bother me, I had to be out in -90 with windchill at Fort Greeley when I was in the Army. Nothing like waking up in a tent with no heat at -40+ and having to work for 12 hours. I don't mind small towns anyway, I live in North Pole (yes I know Fairbanks is only 12 miles away) but I don't go to town that often. Electricity can be cut down to save money, its all about doing stuff the smart way.

    Stiffnecked,

    Oh don't get me wrong, I know there are ways around it. I don't usually eat that much or drink that much milk anyway. I have no problem adapting/overcoming, afterall that happens a lot in the military.

    Jak, what village are you working out of?

    When I last lived in Barrow (4 years ago) milk was $7 a gallon. We just conditioned the kids to like powdered.

    Things are expensive up here but there are ways around it (Costco Bush ordering is your friend). I don't know about housing availability but it seemed there were a lot of apartments and houses for rent when I was there. Maybe things have changed?

    It's all a matter of prespective as to how expensive it is. Milk. Do you really need more than a gallon a month? Not really unless you've got suckling kids or something. Powdered milk worked just fine. Groceries don't have to be purchased in Barrow or any other North Slope village. They can be ordered from stores in Anchorage or Fairbanks and shipped parcel post.

    There are ways around all of these obstacles..

    Talking to the Chief today, it isn't to expensive. Food and what not is expensive, a thing of tide is 50$, a gallon of milk is 11$ etc etc. That is the only down fall.
    LOL! Expense of food is the ONLY downfall??? Have you been to the North Slope?

    They used to have housing reserved in the borough owned apartments over in Browerville. We had to pay but it was only $650 a month for a one bedroom. That was 24 years ago though. I guess things have changed a bit.
    It was a good department to work for back them. Maybe JakFlak will chime in and let us know what the housing deal is in Barrow now...

    Fish,

    Call me Justin,

    Thanks for the information. I did good (at least I think so) on the interview and I have the CVSA later this afternoon. I think you are correct, the Chief was saying it is an ongoing process and that any applicants would attend the Sitka academy in February so she may be getting the list of applicants together. Good luck to you as well.

    Good luck, jstuart.

    I already interviewed and did the poly/voice stress analysis. Still awaiting word back. They're probably waiting until the Anchorage folks get done, but I went up there almost two months ago now. There isn't much housing available, and what houses there are are all really small. I only got a quick tour/ride-along while I was there. They are good people...I was pretty impressed with how close-knit the department is.

    And yes, pay is good. I think it's the highest paying department in the state. Starting salary is 62k minimum...
