Department mission

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.

General information

The North Slope Borough Police Department is dedicated to delivering comprehensive law enforcement services across the
vast expanse of the North Slope Borough. Anchored in Utqiaġvik, our central hub houses a State of Alaska Community Jail facility and a 24-hour Dispatch Center, serving as the emergency communication center for our operations.

Furthermore, the Department maintains sub-stations and personnel in each of the seven remote villages and Prudhoe Bay. To streamline our operations and enhance efficiency, the Department is organized into three distinct divisions: Central Office, Field Operations, and Support Services.
