Law Enforcement Liaison (LEL)
The Alaska Highway Safety Office and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Pacific Northwest Office work with the Juneau, Fairbanks, Wasilla and Kenai Police Departments to foster Alaska's Law Enforcement Liaison (LEL) program. Trained LEL Officers serve as a bridge of communication between the Highway Safety Office and state and local law enforcement agencies to improve the development and implementation of statewide initiatives focusing on traffic safety, education, and law enforcement.
Purpose of the LEL Program
- Enable constant communication between the AHSO and the law enforcement community.
- Communicate the traffic safety priorities of Alaska.
- Promote traffic law enforcement of DUI and seatbelt laws, aggressive driving and child passenger safety.
- Help identity effective traffic law enforcement tactics and communicate these best practices to law enforcement agencies.

Alaska's LEL officers work with the Highway Safety Office to help foster a close working relationship between the law enforcement community and the HSO. The officers above were chosen because of their deep rooted commitment to this idea and it is our hope to see many more join their ranks in the future.
All of Alaska's highly qualified LEL Officers exhibit the same exceptional skills:
- Attention to detail
- Ability to accept critical feedback
- Team player
- Communication skills
