Confidential Hotline – 1-479-705-TIPS (8477)
The Narcotics Division is part of the Criminal Investigations Division. Our Narcotics Investigators and all members of the Johnson County Sheriff's Office are responsible for working drugs as part of their normal daily schedule.
It may be as simple as arresting someone on a traffic stop for possession of drugs or as complex as working a large case which can take time.
As information is gathered on suspected drug dealers or manufacturing operations, a file is started. All tips our Narcotics Division receives stays confidential and investigated. Information is verified as more confidential tips are received the case is built. We work with other local, state, and federal agencies to complete a thorough investigation of the individuals involved. These joint investigations assist in discovery of large-scale Drug Trafficking Organizations.
Once an investigation is completed search warrants for locations and individual arrest warrants are written. A judge will review the information. If the information meets the required criteria, the judge will sign the warrants.
Officers will meet, finalize plans, and execute the search and arrest warrants. Sometimes these plans can be finalized in days, but it can take weeks or months to work a large case.
We appreciate all information that the citizens of Johnson County provide to us. All information and calls will be kept confidential.
We will facilitate the goal of getting the scourge of illegal controlled substances out of our community.

This grant is to implement, comprehensive efforts to identify, respond, treat, and support those impacted by opioids, and other drugs of abuse through investigations and getting individuals affected by substance abuse into treatment and recovery.
