Alaska State Troopers

Alaska State Troopers


National Geographic Channel gained rare access to this elite law enforcement agency for the new series Alaska State Troopers. Filmed over 10 months, the series captures a mixture of raw nature and criminal activity throughout the Alaskan wilderness and its remote villages. Follow state troopers from two divisions within the storied organization: the "blue shirt" Alaska State Troopers, who police the towns and villages, as well as the "brown shirt" Alaska Wildlife Troopers, who enforce fish and game regulations for both commercial and sport activities.

In a state where just about every resident is armed, any scenario a trooper confronts could be fatal. Wildlife Trooper Sgt. Scott Quist explains what it’s like approaching hunters: “One thing that’s a little bit different about our version of law enforcement is that when we go on patrol, when we contact people we know a few things. We know that they will have guns, they will have knives, and they’ll know how to use them.”

Whether performing search and rescue missions on a frozen river or arresting a snowmobiler for a DUI, the challenges an Alaska State Troopers faces are diverse, but one thing is for sure — these are not your average cops. (Source: National Geographic Channel)

Episode Info

Next: 6x03 -- Burning Alaska (Apr/24/2014)


A man armed with an assault rifle threatens safety in a nail-biting standoff and one trooper must rely on his negotiating skills to dissolve the situation before it turns violent. Meanwhile, worry runs high as an out-of-control wildfire heads straight for Fairbanks, Alaska's second-biggest city. As night falls, evacuating the dangerous area of all residents proves to be a more challenging task than expected.


Prev: 6x02 -- Meth, Knives, & Spears (Apr/17/2014)


The troopers begin their shift in a dangerous area of the Mat-Su Valley where heavy drug use and drug trafficking are common. After a couple hostile traffic stops and a meth bust, the troopers set up animal decoys to catch illegal road hunters as they attempt to kill helpless fowl. Later, the troopers respond to reports of alcohol-related incidents, including a drunken bicyclist claiming he was hit by a car on the highway.
