I am a police officer in Texas currently. I need any job leads in Alaska. My wife worked up there a few years ago at the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge. She is currently in the running for a spot in the headquarters office in Anchorage for the National Parks Service. She has inside info that there is an opening in Kenai, she knows it was vacated a couple of weeks ago, but the posting for the job hasn't come up yet. I have been told by the highway patrol that I would qualify for semi-lateral transfer. They said nobody is taken without having to spend at least two weeks in the academy in Anchorage. I have four years experience and a BS in criminal justice. I have good street smarts and skills, I have worked warrants and investigations for the past four years. I have worked undercover using body mikes and covert video systems. I have a fairly well rounded background. I am looking for a local position in the Anchorage/Kenai Peninsula area. Highway patrol is doing year round recruiting, but I don't want to accept an offer and then wind up assigned north of Fairbanks.

By highway patrol do you mean the Alaska State Troopers? They are extremely hard up for recruits; 40% of their force is set to retire over the next few years. You could also look at Fish & Wildlife enforcement. As for slipping right into a position in Kenai quickly, I don't know. Other than a link, I dont know if I can help you.

My friend was applying for a class 3 permit and the interviewing cop tried to recruit him!

By highly paid, I mean $50-60k to start.
