Upon graduating from the training academy, trooper recruits are assigned to one of three first duty assignments. These are located in Fairbanks, Palmer or Soldotna. Troopers often spend their first few years working and living in these areas. Troopers are eligible to “bid” or change duty assignments after they have completed two years of service. The state pays for a trooper if they move and change duty assignments. See AST and AWT pages for more detailed Detachment Information.

Headquarters is located in Anchorage.
