The mission of the North Slope Borough Police Department is to work in partnership with our citizens to create safe and healthy communities, to be respectful of all cultures and people, and to preserve the unique quality of life in North Slope Borough communities.

The Department’s primary responsibility is providing police services within the North Slope Borough. The Department’s headquarters is in Barrow where we operate a jail and 24-hour Dispatch Center. The Department also has offices and staff in each of the seven outlying villages and Prudhoe Bay.

Three divisions oversee specific functions within the Department: Central Office, Field Operations, and Support Services. These divisions are briefly described below, with specific information on their activities and function.
