Village Public Safety Officers (VPSO)

Bristol Bay’s Village Public Safety Officers provide law enforcement, emergency medical and fire response, search and rescue operations, and village health and safety training.

Employed by BBNA and the local village councils, these certified professionals are dedicated to making a positive difference in their communities.

Villages without a VPSO are served by the Alaska State Troopers.
