Alaska Department of Public Safety, State Troopers Alaska Bureau of Investigation
Cold Case Investigation Unit
The Cold Case Investigation Unit (CCIU) was formed in 2002. This unit’s primary function is to investigate unresolved homicide cases previously investigated by the Alaska State Troopers (AST) (and ultimately provide justice for those who have been murdered). The cases being reviewed and investigated by the CCIU date as far back as 1961. Recognizing the time-consuming nature and complexity of many of these cases, the department initiated a program of hiring experienced investigators to work these cold cases. These investigators have been either retired troopers or former police officers. Since inception, the highly experienced and capable investigators who have been assigned to in this unit have also acted as a ready resource for mentoring less experienced personnel within AST.
