Provided your academy meets APSC training standards, you could be hired as a lateral officer.   Even so, most will attend the full 18 week academy, though you would be considered a State Trooper, not a recruit, and be paid as such.

On a case by case basis, our Director's Office will approve some lateral applicants to bypass parts of our academy. Some specific training (up to eight weeks) may still be required (Alaska law, DPS policy, Use of Force, etc.)  The next scheduled Lateral Academy is January, 2020.
