    Now all you need is a map.

      Within 70 miles of Anchorage is pretty limited in a state this spread out. Pretty much leaves you Anchorage and the Mat-Su agencies as far as local stuff. So, APD, Wasilla Pd, Palmer PD. There is also a tiny Houston PD. Also a small PD in Whittier the other direction. I think that's it.

      There are State agencies within that area, the most obvious being the State Troopers, but there are a few State Park Rangers, too.

      And Anchorage has offices for several federal agencies, but not sure if you want that. FBI, DEA, Federal Marshals, NOAA, ICE...those just come to mind off the top of my head.

      That link above isn't very good...of the ones I mentioned I think at least two of the local PD's weren't even listed.

        Way to make it sound like a test question.

        In addition to what fish is saying, Soldtona and Kenai PD - more than 70 miles roadwise, but not by air. Why 70?

          Also just remembered UAA Campus Police....

          And yes, why 70 miles? That's a random distance. I assumed you meant by road, but like Alex said, there are others if you're going by how the crow flies.....

                Keep in mind Anchorage isn't legally a city, it's a municipality that's over 2400 square miles. Driving from the northern border to the southern border is somewhere around 140 miles or so. So a 70 mile radius of that covers a LOT of area.

                  True...I was thinking inside the box and assuming Anchorage (the city) and surrounding communities. Still, looking at the boundaries of the muni doesn't change much in terms of agencies within 70 miles. It might open a couple of more...Seward (not sure how far it is from the southern boundary), and maybe Cordova and Valdez on the East side of things.

                  (it's actually 1700 square miles according to the muni web site....not being snotty about knowing because I just found that out, just letting you know....)

                      The populated area is actually 1961.1 square miles, but after adding in the glacier field it brings it to about 2400.

                          I don't want to live too far from the city, that is why I said 70 miles.
