‘Alaska State Troopers’ Episode Guide (Aug. 19): Coming Between a Father and Son

“In the Line of Duty” Season 6 Premiere (08/19/14) – Follow the troopers as they enter into the cold, dark and dangerous world of Alaska’s criminals. In the Mat-Su Valley, Sgt. Manrique is forced into a father and son conflict in which the father nearly stabbed his son to death.

Then in Wasilla, Trooper Cronin investigates a suspicious truck in a gas station parking lot and finds a familiar face — a felonious woman he’s been searching for. Meanwhile up in Fairbanks, Trooper Haley gets word of an intoxicated man camping in the Alaskan woods.

With insider access to the force, each episode of “Alaska State Troopers” presents a “day-in-the-life” look at the many challenges of the job, capturing a mixture of raw nature and criminal activity throughout Alaska’s frigid wilderness, cities and remote villages. Responding by land, air and sea — with backup sometimes days away — they face danger to protect the people and wildlife of Alaska.

Embed with officers as they respond to high-intensity situations, often facing violent realities and deadly criminals in extreme elements. Whether it’s rescuing a trooper stuck in flight with malfunctioning landing gear, setting up a bear decoy to catch illegal hunters or airlifting a hiker that slid down a mountainside, being prepared for anything is just part of the job.

“Alaska State Troopers” is produced by PSG Films for the National Geographic Channel. For PSG Films, series producer is Brian Jones. For the National Geographic Channel, Executive Producer is Michael Welsh; Vice President of Production and Development is Kevin Mohs, Senior Vice President of Production and Development is Noel Siegel and Executive Vice President of Programming and Strategy is Heather Moran.
