I added what I could, but there's surprisingly little actual information about AST out there... Zero Gravitas (話す投稿) 08:27, 20 February 2006 (UTC)


Someone listed a propse merge between this article at the Alaska State Troopers Museum.

  • Strong Oppose — they're two very distinct entities and should be treated as such by Wikipedia. Jarfingle 08:20, 20 November 2006 (UTC)
merge, they're not so distinct as to be inseparable, nor the museum to be notable as the stub it is. Merging would improve both. Chris 03:06, 22 November 2006 (UTC)
Of course they're not inseparable, anything is possible and we could of course make it work if they were on the same page. However, what would be the ideal situation? I think since the museum is not operated by the troopers[4] and is distinct from the actual enforcement agency to the degree that there would be no point in one big smorgasbord article on everything trooper related — something that appears to be proposed. The Major League Baseball and Baseball Hall of Fame articles are separate and distinct. Same with Inupiat and the Inupiat Heritage Center. Etc. Jarfingle 07:09, 22 November 2006 (UTC)

Second mergeEdit

Chris/Kintetsubuffalo proposed merging this article with the Alaska State Trooper Academy:

  • Strong Oppose — Again, they are both very distinct. The academy's page has a huge amount of content and is especially notable for the special training troopers go through. It also doesn't completely fit under the AK State Troopers since many other types of non-trooper enforcement officers are trained there. Jarfingle 07:09, 22 November 2006 (UTC)

strong oppose Besides the anchorage police academy almost 90% of alaska law enforcement officers receive their police certification in Sitka. Im not even sure if the Fairbanks academy is even still running. While Troopers are stationed there as cadre, I dont believe it should be added to the alaska state troopers entry fbx22 17:12, 29 December 2006

Trivia SectionEdit

Under the Museum section, there is a trivia subsection. I'm deleting this section because no where in the Wikipedia guidelines for an article does it say you can put a trivia section. Please undo this and reply if you object. --Michaelzeng7 (talk) 01:15, 9 March 2011 (UTC)
