Welcome, Jake!  Jake began employment on May 1, 2015 with the City of Fairbanks.

My name is Jacob “Jake” Thayer.  I was born and raised in Fairbanks, AK. I am currently 23 years old. I attended Lathrop High School and I graduated from the University of Alaska Fairbanks with a Bachelor’s Degree in Homeland Security and Emergency Management in December of 2013. While in college I was a firefighter and EMT 2 with the University of Alaska Fairbanks Fire Department. Some of my hobbies include hockey, golf and fitness. I have one older brother (Lyndon, 27 years old). I’ve wanted to get into law enforcement since I was in college. I am honored and excited to serve my community as well as start my law enforcement career in my hometown of Fairbanks, Alaska.
