AS 08.54.640. Law Enforcement Officers and Game Biologists.

(a) Notwithstanding AS 08.54.610 - 08.54.630 and except as provided in (b) of this section, a person may not hold, or earn experience credits to apply for, a registered guide-outfitter license under this chapter, while the person is a law enforcement officer and for three months after terminating the person's status as a law enforcement officer.

(b) A registered guide-outfitter license, class-A assistant guide license, or assistant guide license issued under this chapter, or under former provisions of AS 08.54.300 - 08.54.590, after May 16, 1992, is suspended if the person to whom the license is issued subsequently becomes a law enforcement officer. A person whose license is subject to suspension under this subsection shall notify the department that the person has become a law enforcement officer within 30 days after becoming a law enforcement officer. The suspension of a license under this subsection remains in effect until three months have elapsed from the date on which the licensee provides written notification to the department of the fact that the person is no longer a law enforcement officer. A person whose license is suspended under this subsection is not required to renew the license or pay license renewal fees for the period of suspension. Once a suspension of a license is terminated, the licensee may provide, without further payment of a guide license fee, the guide services authorized by the license for the remainder of the licensing period in which the suspension is terminated. Notwithstanding other provisions of this subsection, if a person whose license is suspended under this subsection fails to notify the department within one year after the person is no longer a law enforcement officer, the person's license lapses and the person is eligible for reissuance of the license only as provided in AS 08.54.670 . The board may adopt regulations to implement this subsection.

(c) A person who holds any class of guide license and who is employed by the Department of Fish and Game or a federal wildlife management agency may not, while employed by the department or agency as a game or wildlife biologist and for 12 months after leaving employment with the department or agency as a game or wildlife biologist, engage in providing big game hunting services in a game management unit in which the person conducted game or wildlife management or research activities for the department or agency at any time during the preceding 12 months.

(d) In this section, "law enforcement officer" means a person who is

(1) employed by the Department of Public Safety as a state trooper or as a law enforcement officer engaged in fish and wildlife protection; or

(2) employed as a fish and wildlife law enforcement officer by the United States Department of the Interior or the United States Department of Agriculture.
