To the visitors of Johnson County – WELCOME!
To our citizens of Johnson County – Thank you and we are glad you are here!
As we transition into the summer months we need to take a moment to remind everyone of some summertime safety tips to help make our summer fun and safe!
Johnson County offers many beautiful outdoor activities. Take a deep breath, relax and get your toes wet in the wonderful lakes and streams, load up the fishing gear and catch the big one that always gets away, enjoy a campfire with your family or grab a bike and ride the many trails we have to offer. We do ask that while you do those activities and so much more that you are aware of your surroundings. If you see something that just isn’t right please do not hesitate to call us. We would rather be safe than sorry – no matter how minor it may seem, your call is important to us!
School is out so that means the kiddos are too! Please be careful while driving through neighborhoods and parks. Slow down, stay off your phone and buckle up – Safety First!
We love when visitors come to town to enjoy all that Johnson County offers but keep in mind that means that there will be an increase in traffic. We have many beautiful roads that motorcycle riders enjoy too so remember to “Look Twice Save a Life!”
With summer comes the summer heat!Please apply sunscreen and drink lots of water.If you or another person in your party becomes dehydrated please call 911 so we can get you medical attention immediately.
Every summer we hear reports of children and pets left in hot cars. Many of these children and pets die each year due to heat stroke by being left alone in a parked car. Temperatures can rise above 100 degrees in as little as ten minutes on a hot day. Before you leave your car take a minute to look in the back seat. Another helpful thing to do is to get items from your backseat by opening the rear doors. This will ensure that you don’t forget anything or anyone. Putting your child’s bags in the front seat will help along with using mirrors to see your child.
We thank you for being part of our community and we are here for you 24/7. As always, when you see a Deputy, wave hello!
Have a safe and enjoyable summer season.
Sheriff Larry Jones
