Alaska welcomes police officers fired for defying vaccines mandates: 'We back the blue'

"Alaska's law enforcement community invites you to consider the 49th state where we back the blue."

Nick Monroe Cleveland Ohio

Alaska isn't putting any "new" policies in place; they're just keeping on with what was their previous normal.

On Monday, New York City's public staff held a massive demonstration opposing the local COVID-19 vaccine restrictions mandating who is allowed to work. City workers in general have until the end of the month to get their jabs in, to be allowed to return at the start of November.

At the beginning of last week, Chicago put their own police officers on "no-pay" leave in relation to the COVID-19 mandates enacted by Mayor Lori Lightfoot.

But some states aren't going the same route as them and New York. Places like Alaska are signaling that everyone is welcome.

Alaskan Governor Mike Dunleavy spelled things out for the general public.

The way the Anchorage Daily News presented the situation is that any prison guards or cops in the "Lower 48" are free to come to Alaska for work if necessary.

Alaska doesn't currently have a vaccine mandate, nor will they require one in the foreseeable future. In response to that, Alaska Rep. Liz Snyder labeled Dunleavy's message as problematic as to what exactly he was inviting into the state.

The Alaska Department of Corrections admitted to a high turnover rate for their correctional officers. Spokesperson Betsey Holley said they'd indeed accept any applicant who was looking for work in light of vaccine requirements getting in the way.

Over the weekend, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis invited any cops from out-of-state who lose work from opposing COVID-19 vaccine mandates to move to Florida. He announced in a recent Fox News interview that he's pushing to give a $5,000 sign-on bonus to those affected by these requirements.
