The Alaska Law Enforcement Training Academy (ALET) Program offers specialized classes and practical training for a variety of law enforcement careers. It is offered cooperatively by the University of Alaska Southeast and the Alaska Department of Public Safety.
This intensive 15-week program is offered in both fall and spring semesters. Students completing the session receive an Occupational Endorsement in Law Enforcement.
The ALET program meets training requirements of the Alaska Police Standards Council for employment as Alaska State Troopers, municipal police officers, fire marshals, or airport safety officers. Although the program does not guarantee employment, many of Alaska Law Enforcement Training graduates are currently working in Alaska as officers with public and private agencies.
This program requires 16 credit hours of course work:
- Fundamentals of CPR and First Aid
- Law Enforcement Procedures
- Ethics and Conduct
- Traffic Law and Enforcement
- Enforcement Techniques
- Criminal Justice
Admission is extended on a first come, first served basis to qualified students able to complete the rigorous application process. Therefore, students are encouraged to apply early. Contact the Sitka Public Safety Academy for details.
Students are required to reside at the Academy while completing the 16-credit Justice course requirements. No portion of this course work may be transferred from another institution.
