Alaska State Troopers General Investigation Units

(Anchorage, Alaska) – On July 16, 2017, the Alaska State Troopers reorganized the oversight of some of its investigative personnel in an effort to improve the overall efficiency of service delivery. General Investigation Units (GIUs) have been established in Fairbanks, Palmer and Soldotna comprised of personnel who had been previously assigned to the Alaska Bureau of Investigation in those areas.  These GIUs continue to investigate complex major cases, but are now supervised by local command staff.

The Alaska Bureau of Investigation continues to operate out of Anchorage and responds statewide to assist GIUs, other Trooper detachments and outside departments as requested.
