Public Safety

The Public Safety division administers the Village Public Safety Officer (VPSO) program.


The Village Public Safety Officer (VPSO) program trains and employs individuals residing in the village as first responders to public safety emergencies such as search and rescue, fire protection, emergency medical assistance, crime prevention and basic law enforcement.

The VPSO program works closely with the local mayor and city council as well as with the Alaska State Troopers to administer this program in designated Southeast Communities.

For eligibility requirements, please review the VPSO section in Tlingit & Haida's Program Profiles booklet. The booklet may be accessed by clicking here.
