Alaska State Troopers

Anybody else watch this show? It's better than Cops. 1 hr long episodes. Extra element of danger because in Alaska, CCWs aren't required to carry a concealed weapon.
They are the first line of defense on the last frontier, the roughly 400 state troopers who patrol the rugged and unforgiving terrain of America’s largest state — Alaska. One of the toughest law enforcement agencies in the nation, these officers often travel hundreds of miles in piercing subzero temperatures to uphold the law. Responding by land, air and sea — with backup sometimes days away — they face danger to protect the people and wildlife of Alaska.

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.

i watched a couple episodes... was nothing but seizing alcohol and arresting drunk alaskans

as for concealed carry there's still like 4 states in the usa that are unrestricted
edit ah Alaska, Vermont, Arizona, Wyoming and South Carolina and Utah are in the process of allowing it too

however i will say the episodes still drew me in, was just interesting to watch (specially hearing about how lucrative alcohol smuggling can be)
i was surprised they weren't arresting rapists in like every episode though (alaskas like the rape capital of north america)

i PVR'd both shows when they started coming out on NATGEOHD but i quickly cancelled recordings for the state troopers show.

then again, it's just slightly weird to see the california game wardens with assault rifles going after poachers.
