Series debut of a rare breed of law enforcement officers as just 13 Alaska State Troopers try to keep the peace and deter crime among the 10,000 festival goers at the Hoodoo Mountain Winter Sports Fest.
On Alaska's harsh Kenai Peninsula, hunters have gone missing in the wild, sending the Alaska State Troopers out on a dangerous search. A young man gets belligerent with a trooper after a motor vehicle accident involving his ATV. And troopers investigate the crash of a motorcycle and a tractor-trailer.
Mischief is the norm during the 20 hour nights experienced on Alaska's Seward Peninsula. A wanted man with a $10,000 felony warrant is taken into custody by a female trooper while her trooper husband interviews a man suspected of smuggling booze into alcohol free villages.
A special unit of the Alaska State Troopers called the Wildlife Patrol go after law breaking large game hunters. Trooper recruits are put through a two-and-a-half day survival test in the brutal Alaskan wild.
Even in as remote location as the Alaskan town of Bethel, a task force is put together in order to track down and arrest a drug dealer. And troopers are dispatched to the location of an ATV accident located near Sitka Sound.
The harsh wilderness of Alaska's bush country may have few who dare to live there, but drunkenness, sexual assault, and murder are regular events the troopers must deal with.
