Congratulations to the 21 Lemon Creek Correctional officers who recently attended and became certified Institutional Investigators.

The two day, 16-hour Institutional Investigator class was designed to provide correctional officers investigative guidelines, knowledge, and skills in order to affect prosecutable criminal cases and to assist Alaska State Troopers and DOC Investigators to properly preserve, document, and investigate crimes within DOC institutions.

Besides a written examination, investigators had to develop a plan to properly preserve and document the scene, and properly seize all of the potential evidence.

Some of the feedback from the students included:

“Best class I have taken in 10 years.”

“Very engaging. Kept the topic interesting and the class never became boring.”

“Loved this class!”

“Very interactive. Working through the tough cases was very informative.”

Instructors will be continuing visiting institutions around the state in order to help even more officers learn investigative techniques.

Governor Walker sings proclamations recognizing COs and Nurses

This week is a big week for DOC, its National Correctional Officers Week and National Nurses Week. Both roles are critical to the daily functions of each of our facilities and to public safety.

Yesterday, Alaska Governor Bill Walker signed proclamations that recognize the hard work these men and women do day in and day out.

Thank you to all of our COs and nurses. The work you do does not go unnoticed. We’re thankful for your dedication to serving Alaskans.
