The Alaska State Troopers is also involved in apprehending fugitives as part of the Alaska Fugitive Task Force, an inter-agency collaborative of Alaska police departments that cooperates with police agencies throughout the United States and less commonly with Interpol in apprehending wanted men and women.Unlike many lower-48 states, Alaska troopers are both state troopers and game/wildlife enforcement officers.The remaining officers serve in small agencies with anywhere from one to ten officers on average.
It is a division of the Alaska Department of Public Safety (DPS).Before the founding of the Troopers, law enforcement in Alaska was performed by a succession of federal agencies: first the United States Army, then the United States Navy and Revenue Cutter Service, the U. Customs Service, and finally the United States Marshals Service after a civil government was formed in 1884.The need for law enforcement became critical in the late 19th century as gold was discovered in Alaska. Prostitution, gambling, murder, rape, robbery, arson, kidnapping, aggravated assault, and claim jumping incidents were rampant.Because Alaska has no counties, therefore no county police or sheriffs, in its constitution, the troopers also handle civil papers and mental health custody orders and serve as police throughout mostly all of rural Alaska.Alaska does have boroughs, which have some similarities but with lesser powers of lower-48 U. counties, but only the North Slope Borough police truly functions similarly to a lower-48 county police agency and thus relieves AST of a need to be the primary police agency in this particular region.
