Those pesky watermarks on jail mugshots may be back

Have had a couple of reports that the red watermarks diagonally on jail mugshots are showing up on the photos again. We worked on this a couple of years ago with the Kentucky Jailers Association and companies that provide mugshots and were assured the news media would be able to get clean mugshots without the watermark.

If you’ve requested any jail mugshots recently, check to see if the watermark shows up and then please let me know. We’re already in the process of contacting the Kentucky Jailers Association to see what has changed and how we can proceed getting the mugshots with the red lettering.

Just send me an email if you have received any of these recently and whether or not you’ve talked to your jailer about getting clear mugshots. Contact me at
