Alaska PD brings viewers to America's Last Frontier, where the line between civilization and lawlessness can be razor thin. Chronically shorthanded police departments across the state must turn to officers from the Lower 48 to fight a soaring crime rate. For the "newbies" it is a trial by fire as they learn first-hand that policing, like everything else, is different in Alaska. In a state where guns are carried as part of everyday life, officers often have to protect an entire town by themselves while enforcing laws many are unwilling to follow. They face numerous dangers found only in Alaska, not just from people who want to be free from the rules of society, but also from encounters with predatory animals roaming through town and sub-zero conditions that can be deadly and unrelenting. The series will follow Alaska's law enforcement in Fairbanks, Kodiak, Kotzebue and Petersburg.
Three new officers have to adapt to the harsh realities of policing in Alaska. Officer Chris Cook questions his future in remote Kotzebue. Officer Stephanie Jones has to battle her own soft-hearted nature to succeed as a rookie. Officer Christopher Zenyuch is eager to prove himself in Fairbanks.
In Kotzebue, Sgt. Norman Hughes and Officer Robert Odom grapple with the distrust of the police as they try to keep the community safe. In Fairbanks, Sgt. Nathan Werner and Officer Gerrit Butler bring a personal touch in dealing with alcohol and drug-fueled crimes.
Alaska is home to many people who live by their own rules. That means law enforcement must deal with quirky characters of all kinds on a daily basis. Some are good, some are bad and some are downright hilarious.
Two Petersburg PD rookies learn that being an Alaska cop sometimes means saving eagles and battling fires. In Fairbanks, during his last weeks before retirement, Sgt. Peyton Merideth and his officers engage in high-speed chases under dangerous conditions.
