Security Measure


Johnson County has declared a state of emergency in response to COVID-19.

These operational plans began Monday, March 16, and will be in effect until further notice, unless indicated differently below. As this is an evolving situation, please check back here for additional details.

Patrols will not decrease. Officers will exercise great discretion in their proactive enforcement activities. The following remain our highest priority calls for service:

  • Crimes in progress 
  • Issues affecting public safety
  • Issues affecting traffic safety and traffic flow
  • Medical calls in which officers could perform life-saving measures
  • Calls otherwise deemed critical in nature and time sensitive

When individuals call to request police services, it is possible that in rare instances we would take the report over the phone rather than dispatch an officer. We will still dispatch officers on high priority calls. Please do not hesitate to call 911 or our non-emergency line at 913.477.7301 if you need police services. We will then determine the best response to that request based on the information we receive.

The following services which ordinarily take place at our station are being suspended until further notice: 

  • Child car-seat inspections
  • Citizen Volunteer Program
  • Citizen Ride-along Program
