I am blessed to receive so many compliments on the Sheriff’s Office. Most times I receive the compliment of a good job etc. when the credit should go to my Deputies, Jailers and Staff.
The Johnson County Sheriff's Office is not a good organization but a great one. I know I’ve only been the Sheriff since the first of the year and almost every day someone tells me what a great job we are doing. It would be easy to smile, pat myself on the back and kick back, but the truth is the Sheriff’s Office is great because of the employees who work here. It is their dedication to their job, their ‘do what it takes' attitude that causes people to take notice. I believe the difference is that our employees truly care about their job and the people of this community and it is evident by the response from the public.
I think sometimes leaders too often forget who is on the front lines. We forget who it is that meets and greets the public every day. Our reputation and the reputation of the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office is in the hands of the people who represent us, our employees
God has blessed me and my family by giving me this opportunity to serve as Sheriff. He has truly blessed me by surrounding me with the people who work with me every day. Thank you employees, and thank you community for the support you give all of us.
Sheriff Larry Jones
