Anchorage Police Department – History and Background

The Anchorage Police Department is the primary law enforcement agency in the city of Anchorage, Alaska, United States. The Police Department was founded in the year 1920 and has currently 516 employees in it, with 362 of them being sworn members and 154 being unsworn members. The official jurisdiction of the Police Department is within the city limits of Anchorage in the state of Alaska. Mr. Justin Doll is the present Chief of the Anchorage Police Department. The Mission of the Anchorage Police Department according to its Mission Statement is “to protect and serve our community in the most professional and compassionate manner possible.”

The city of Anchorage has a long and rich history in the United States and it was on November 23, 1920, that the city was officially incorporated as a first-class city. Later in the year, it was decided that John J. Strugus be made the first Chief of Police and thus he began his official tenure on January 1, 1921 at a salary of $200 p.m. On June 19, 1935, the city council had received a petition signed by a few property owners to make a 24X7 police force. The Anchorage Police Department had to, in the initial years, serve on foot and occasionally borrow cars and taxis from the citizens. It was in 1941 when it was finally decided to buy their own police vehicles.
