Target #1: 5% increase over the previous year in the number of officers sponsored to attend academy training
Number of Officers Sponsored for Academy Training
Analysis of results and challenges: Of the 29 students, 17 were sponsored to attend the Department of Public Safety (DPS) Academy, 12 attended the University of Alaska Fairbanks Community and Technical College (UAF CTC) Academy. For FY2018, APSC did not sponsor the Alaska Police Standards Re-Certification Academy held at the DPS Academy, the Municipal Correctional Officer Academy held at the Department of Correction Palmer Academy and the 2nd Department of Public Safety (DPS) Academy.
Prior to FY2018, it was the Council's intent to fund municipal academy training classes for as many eligible officers as possible. In FY2018, per the intent of the legislature, sponsored basic municipal academy training was eliminated. Limited police training surcharge revenues will be dedicated to sponsoring advanced training and regional in-service training events across the state.
|A2: Core Service - Ensure compliance with APSC minimum qualification regulations.|
Target #1: Process all misconduct investigations as required by the Administrative Procedures Act.
Percentage of Internal Investigations Closed
Analysis of results and challenges: To fully resolve any compliance issues, all misconduct investigations are completed as soon as possible. When misconduct is substantiated, administrative action begins and can sometimes take several years to resolve. When misconduct is not determined to be disqualifying, the case is closed immediately with no further action taken by Alaska Police Standards Council.
As of July 1, 2018, 23 cases are open and pending (FY2015 has 1, FY2016 has 2, and FY2017 has 2). These cases are in various stages of investigation or administrative action (i.e., pending criminal convictions, discovery, court hearings, council action, and/or superior court appeals).
The reported investigations closed include cases that were closed during FY2018, regardless of which year they were initiated.
Current as of September 4, 2018
