DOC/IRS Partnership Leading to Convictions

Check out this KTUU story when you have time.

This is a great example of the partnerships we have with Federal agencies like the IRS in enforcing laws for both those in and out of custody.

Alaska Department of Corrections officers and facility staff provided resources for cell searches, jail calls, and provided vast insight into the dynamics of prison life that led to convictions.

We appreciate you!

Pretrial, Probation, and Parole Supervision Week

As we in the Department of Corrections celebrate Pretrial, Probation, and Parole Supervision Week, we want to take a moment to highlight the very important work our probation and parole professionals do here in Alaska.

You take on many roles in the Division from inside the institutions to outside in the field, that requires working with all facets of society to make our world a better place.
