ANCHORAGE- An Alaska law enforcement panel has voted to revoke the licenses of former police officers, state troopers and state Department of Corrections workers.
   
The Alaska Police Standards Council voted this week to revoke certificates for 11 people, including former Anchorage police officer Rafael Mora-Lopez, a Mexican who was living in the U.S. without legal permission.
   
Mora-Lopez pleaded guilty in 2011 to federal counts of passport fraud and false claim of U.S. citizenship. He had lived in Anchorage for more two decades posing as Rafael Alberto Espinoza, a U.S. citizen living in Mexico.
   
Two others, besides the 11 whose licenses were revoked, surrendered their licenses rather than fight to keep the certificates.
   
The 13-member council met Tuesday in Kenai.
