Location: Anchorage, Alaska
The Alaska Department of Law, Office of Special Prosecutions, is recruiting for a full time attorney specializing in the area of alcohol interdiction. This position will prosecute alcohol-related offenses, including Title 4 violations. Alcohol abuse has been found to be a significant contributing factor to criminal activity, particularly domestic violence and sexual assault, throughout the state. Several Alaskan communities have elected to restrict alcohol possession or consumption in various ways – up to and including outlawing it completely. To help these communities achieve their goals, this prosecutor works in a coordinated effort with the Department of Public Safety, local law enforcement agencies, the U.S. Postal Service, and federal law enforcement agencies to focus on interdicting illegal alcohol before it reaches these local option communities.
This prosecutor position is located in Anchorage and primarily handles interdiction prosecution cases and appeals in the Anchorage, Nome, and Kotzebue areas. The position requires frequent travel to both Nome and Kotzebue for grand jury, evidentiary hearings, and trial, amongst other reasons. This is a statewide position where the attorney will share his or her expertise and resources by providing advice and training to other prosecutors in various District Attorney Offices as well as to local law enforcement.Learn More
