Set in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Appalachia, "Southern Justice" documents -- in a cinema verite fashion -- the work of law enforcement agencies in Sullivan County, Tenn., and Ashe County, N.C. With a combined population of fewer than 200,000, both small counties have their local charm, but they also have their share of hardships. Methamphetamine, prescription drugs, and alcohol play a role in a large portion of local crimes. Incorporating a shared philosophy best described as"Andy Griffith in the 21st century," the sheriffs and their deputies are tasked with protecting these unique, close-knit communities, and they often must use a mixture of action and compassion. And if a peaceful solution proves impossible, both agencies are ready with SWAT teams to handle the most violent situations.

Harlan County, Ky., has a history of violence and corruption associated with coal mining, but because that industry in Appalachia is a shell of its former self, law enforcement is dedicating its resources elsewhere. The county has been hit hard by a new kind of crime -- prescription drug dealing -- and it's up to Sheriff Marvin J. Lipfird to get it under control. In the reality-documentary series "Kentucky Justice," Lipfird and his team of deputies target everyone from street-corner dealers to city officials in a quest to clean up communities.
