By Pippa Raga, Distractify
The newest addition to the Live P.D. A&E franchise family is Alaska PD, which brings viewers all the way to America's Last Frontier to see the crimes that cops there are faced with on a daily basis.
"It's difficult for people to understand how cops work in Alaska," one officer tells cameras early in the pilot. There, the police department must face "extreme situations" in "extreme cold."
While it sounds like a less-than-glamorous way to spend 40 hours a week, we don't mind watching from the comfort of our homes to see how police work in Alaska is done.
One officer who proves to be quite relatable is Jamie Ramos, who moves to the Alaska PD from Portsmouth, Va. in the early moments of Episode 1.

"Things you would have never done in Lower-48 life become common here," says one male officer in a voiceover within the first few moments of the show. The cop explains that many small communities in Alaska featured on the series have crime rates that nearly double the national average.
In Kodiak, Alaska, where Jamie is entering the force, the serene landscape is "almost mythological" because of the postcard-perfect nature, preserved wildlife, and of course, Kodiak's national treasure: the Kodiak bear.
However, the day-to-day work of the officers in the Alaska PD proves to be less than idyllic.
