The Wildlife Investigations Unit (WIU) is responsible for the investigation of complex or high-value commercial fishery crimes, large-scale, or ongoing hunting and guiding violations as well as sport-fish guiding violations. WIU may assume responsibility for large cases or provide expertise and sophisticated equipment in support of efforts by field Troopers.

The WIU works closely with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, National Marine Fisheries Service, federal prosecutors, similar agencies from other states and the Alaska Department of Law’s Office of Special Prosecutions.
