  • Anchorage (Alaska) Midwest Recruiting



    - No College Degree Required-

    Anchorage, 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 successful 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 notarized) 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 DD214 (if applicabale). Although advance registration is preferred, walk-ins will be accepted if they meet the requirements.

    Applicants that successfully 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 assesment, medical evaluation, and polygraph examination. Further information will be provided during the briefing.

    The academy start date has been changed to Dec 1, so we can all enjoy the Thanksgiving weekend!

      Even though Anchorage needs officers, they are extremely picky. Very high washout rate. Long way to travel to get rejected.

        True, that is why we are coming to the midwest, to reduce the risk for the applicant to fly all the way to Anchorage to only not pass the test on the 1st day and be turned away. Odds of success increase greatly after the first couple of phases.
