August 20, 2020by Media

BSNC congratulates Harry Ivanoff of Unalakleet, Nicholas Toolie of Savoonga and Darrin Topkok of Teller for completing nine weeks of training and graduating from the Village Safety Police Officer (VPSO) program. These VPSOs have recently returned to their hometowns where they will be serving. As VPSOs they will provide police, firefighting, emergency medical treatment, water safety and search and rescue coordination for their communities and provide reports to the Alaska State Troopers and the parole and probation office.

The eight other communities in the Bering Strait region that need VPSOs include Diomede, Elim, Gambell, Koyuk, Shishmaref, St. Michael, Stebbins and Wales. VPSOs must attend training in law enforcement, firefighting, search and rescue and emergency trauma training.
