Despite its small-town feel and remote location, the western outpost of Bethel has its share of big-city problems. In a city plagued with alcohol and drug problems, a special drug unit prepares for an undercover mission to bust an OxyContin dealer. Then, in the dead of winter, wildlife troopers gear up and head out on ATVs to patrol 20 miles across frozen lakes and swamps. People are up and out at all hours of the night, and so are the troopers, keeping the towns and highways safe.
