The Anchorage Police Department wants to hear from you. If you have a question you'd like to have answered, please click the link below and send it to us. We may post your question on our web site with an answer.

Some questions may be answered by reviewing our Frequently Asked Questions document. If you do not find the answer to your question, please submit it by clicking on the link below.


The AskAPD e-mail forum is designed to answer questions from the community and others that are not addressed in the many other links on this web site. Please look first for a specific topic among those links before using this forum as it is not monitored on a regular or full time basis. If you have a crisis or an emergency, do not use this email address to contact APD. Call 911 if you have an emergency or 786-8900 for a non-emergency police response.

Citizen Advisory: please do not send pornographic images of juveniles to APD through email. To do so is Distribution of Child Pornography and is a felony crime. Please contact the Cyber Crimes Unit at 907-786-2634 for further instruction on what to do with these images for crime reporting purposes.

Questions to the AskAPD forum are reviewed and answered by APD Command Officers on a rotating basis. Please allow adequate time for the assigned commander to respond to your question as they have many other duties in addition to monitoring the forum. Also, the forum is not generally monitored on weekends. You will receive an answer with the most accurate information available as quickly as possible. Solicitor or inappropriate e-mails will not be answered.
