Coronavirus Precautions Taken


March 13, 2020

Due to the increased nation-wide concerns with the Coronavirus/COVID-19, we will be suspending all on-site inmate visitations as well as walk-in CCW Renewals until further notice. The decision for this suspension is for the protection of our staff, inmates and the general public. After 30 days, we will reassess the situation and determine our next course of action. If you are a registered sex offender you still need to follow all your reporting guidelines. Attorneys will be granted access to their clients only when it cannot be done remotely.

To the family and fiends of the inmates who are incarcerated at our facility, we encourage you to utilize (Home Wave), which is our on-line video visitation system, or you are always welcome to have phone conversations with them on the Encatele inmate phone system. If you are wanting to put money on the Inmates commissary account, you must send a money order (no cash or checks) to the Johnson county Sheriff's Office via the US Mail along with the inmate's complete name.

If you have a need to speak to one of our officers, please call the non-emergency number at Central Dispatch (660) 747-5511 and ask to speak to an officer. Reference your concerns or issues.

For future updates see our website: or contact us at 660-747-6469.
