Twin Peaks Sheriff Department


Michael Ontkean is looking for a certain jacket (see pictures below) worn by Sheriff Harry S. Truman throughout select episodes of Twin Peaks. If you are in possession of this jacket, Mr. Ontkean would like to personally borrow it immediately for three weeks.

Compensation for the jacket’s use is $500 and a phone call from the Sheriff himself! Maybe he’ll tell you what he’s been up to?

The jacket will be returned promptly!

Email [address removed] if you are the lucky owner. If you are not, please share this message.

UPDATE: Great job, everyone! Welcome to Twin Peaks received tons of useful tips and a few days ago, @dugpa found a nearly identical vintage jacket on eBay!

Michael Ontkean is thrilled. It’s not ‘the’ jacket, but it’s the best he’s seen in months of looking. Discovered just a day after Mike turned 69 on January 24, he let us know it’s ‘the best birthday present‘ he could ask for. Thanks to all the fans who participated in the search!

  1. robin Brugger says:

    Yes, i wish i had this jacket!

  2. Emma says:

    That’s a – if you don’t mind me saying – a damn fine jacket.

    • Amy says:

      I must say I agree – and I wonder if this damn fine jacket is needed for filming the new tv episodes?

      • Grief Rhys Jones says:

        And if so, does “three weeks” sound like Ontkean will have a main role again?

        • Amy says:

          Maybe it’s not for “every” episode. As it says he originally wore it in “select episodes before.

          I hope it’s for Twin Peaks 2016 – it wouldn’t be the same without Cooper and the Sheriff!

          To those who question why the same jacket twenty-five years later – I say it’s all about the mojo! : )

          Anyway, I shared via Google+ – so, I’ve done my work to get the word out.

          • Grief Rhys Jones says:

            Yeah, that’s a very good point – he won’t necessarily be wearing the jacket the whole time he’s on screen!

            As others suggest, though, maybe it serves a more mysterious purpose. Perhaps Truman has disappeared and they find his jacket in the woods…? 🙂

        • Amy says:

          Ah – he could have disappeared…very good call!

          I’m just praying they find the jacket, because he seems like such a good guy and he must really need it to offer up the reward.

          • Grief Rhys Jones says:

            Well, it’s been said that Season 3 (had the show continued at the time) would have seen Harry rescue Cooper from the Black Lodge… maybe Lynch and Frost have kept some of that idea, and Truman ventured in there at some point during the last 25 years, never to return?

            Would certainly be one explanation for why they need the exact same jacket…

            Ah, idle speculation – gotta love it!

  3. Melanie east says:

    I am highly suspicious

  4. Emmyonthego says:

    I tire of the word damn.

  5. Gorgonslunk says:

    I’m sure his character got anew jacket since then.

    • Nedsvartning says:

      It could be that it’s a piece to some puzzle.

      • Amy says:

        With David – anything is possible! I’ve wondered the same thing though. I just hope they find it!

  6. jon says:

    seems like it wouldnt be that hard to find a jacket that looks exactly like that or have 1 made,

  7. Cooper says:

    If this was for filming, he wouldn’t be asking the fans for the jacket, Lynch’s production crew would be the ones searching for it, or more likely making it from scratch. The fact that he wants it indicates it’s for something independent, perhaps making a video for Lynch to prove he can still do it.

  8. Zach says:

    So he can ask for this jacket earlier this year then bail on the whole new project? Well slap us in the face. I guess Hawaii is too far from Washington. If it’s a personal reason fine but he wouldn’t give a reason.
