'Justified' to make police image more accurate

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - The producers of the TV show "Justified" have reached out to Kentucky police agencies in order to come up with a more accurate portrayal of officers.

The show is about a U.S. marshal for the Eastern District of Kentucky, but it sometimes includes portrayals of Lexington police and Kentucky State Police.

Lexington police spokeswoman Sherelle Roberts told the Lexington Herald-Leader that she spoke last week with a costume designer who wants the uniforms on the FX show to look more like real ones (http://bit.ly/oKctQM).

State police Lt. David Jude said a designer also spoke with the state police post in Harlan so the show could correctly portrays uniforms, equipment and the demeanor of troopers. Jude said the post previously contacted the show's producers to express concern that troopers weren't accurately portrayed.
