    • Synopsis
    • Known as one of the toughest police academies in the country if not the world, the MSP academy is a 20 week, non-stop challenge. KTTBG creatively blends the difficulties of this experience along with the personal stories of not only the recruits and instructors but their families as well. Mixed within the series are ‘in-car’ videos from life and death police incidents that tie to the training showcased in each episode (i.e. a video of Troopers engaged in a deadly shoot out with two bank robbers who moments earlier had killed a police officer).

      During this season of KTTBG the viewers will get to experience not only the trials of becoming a Trooper, but they will get to know the human side of our first responders and the strong family support system which gets them through the day. KTTBG is more than a show about guns, bullets and police vehicles – it is about compelling stories of those who risk it all to protect the rest of us.
