ALE special agents have statewide territorial jurisdiction with authority to investigate and arrest for any criminal offense. With this broad statutory authority, ALE seeks individuals of the highest caliber of education and experience to enter our application process, attend the ALE Agent Training Academy, and ultimately fill positions as special agents.

Special agents must have detailed knowledge of the laws of arrest, search and seizure, handling of firearms, and use of deadly force. ALE investigations often require lengthy surveillance, undercover operations, in-depth interviews and detailed report writing, and other advanced techniques to collect the evidence necessary for court or administrative hearings.

Applicants should be self-motivated and capable of working both independently and as part of a team. Applicants must also be able to work alone in stressful, demanding environments. For those who meet the qualifications for the position of an ALE special agent, we offer career opportunities in a challenging and rewarding profession with excellent benefits.
