– COVID-19 Advisory Notice –

To slow the spread of COVID-19 within institutions, we are asking all Officers to consider the following:

  • When you are not at work practice social distancing, i.e. do not leave your house unless it is an emergency or to pick up essential items. If possible, have someone else pick up essential items.
  • If you experience symptoms or have been exposed to someone who is experiencing symptoms of COVID-19,  inform your institution immediately. Let your institutional Management make the decision on if you should or should not go to work.

The mission of the Alaska Correctional Officers Association is to promote and enhance the Correctional Officer’s profession, advocate for safe terms and conditions of employment, and to bargain for fair and equitable wages and benefits. Established in 2004, the Alaska Correctional Officers Association (ACOA) is an independent labor organization representing Alaska Correctional Officers state-wide. ACOA’s primary duty is to ensure that each Officer is able to return safely to his or her family at the end of each shift. Correctional Officers work behind the scenes to protect the public 24/7. Correctional Officers truly ‘Walk Alaska’s Toughest Beat!’.
