Johnson County Sheriff's Office COVID-19 Guidelines

Sheriff Duane E. Burgess, Announces Precautionary Measures In Reference To The Coronavirus (COVID-19).

The Johnson County Jail is limiting access to visitors as a precautionary measure in reference to the Coronavirus (COVID-19). Inmate video and remote visitation will continue as normal at this time. We will continue to allow attorneys into the facility to visit their clients through the glass barrier. All jail programs and visits by volunteers have been suspended in an effort to prevent the COVID-19 from entering the facility. We will continue to monitor this situation and reevaluate this restriction based on the newest information.

All newly processed inmates undergo a medical screening at the time of intake. The screening includes a temperature check and health-related questions. The Johnson County Jail has extensive procedures in place, including isolation and quarantine plans, should incarcerated persons test positive. All jail staff are required to wear masks at all times while in the jail and are required to wear full PPE, including gowns and gloves, when going in the isolated cell blocks with known infections. Inmates who are confirmed positive are being kept in separate blocks from those that still have results pending and those that test negative. All inmates are issued surgical masks which are being replaced if they are damaged or excessively worn. Inmates cannot be forced to wear the masks but most are cooperating.

Non-essential office services are being provided within limitations. This includes gun permits, fingerprinting, in-person records requests, obtaining copies of reports and related activities. The preferred for obtaining these services follow:

  • You can request a copy of report by emailing the following: reports@johnsoncountysheriff.com
  • Peddler applicants should fill out an application here: PEDDLER PERMIT
  • You can inquire about gun permits and fingerprinting at info@johnsoncountysheriff.com
  • Essential services such as Sheriff Sales and cash bonding will continue with increased precautions including personal protective equipment (PPE) and taped lines to maintain distances.

You will see restrictions as well regarding our deputies who patrol the road. Some calls for services will be handled over the telephone such as reports. Emergency call responses will remain the same and we will still perform our public safety duties.

Our goal in limiting these services is to minimize the spread of the virus through contact and to protect members of the public and our employees.

This is a fluid situation and the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office will continue to collaborate with our community and state partners to identify any needs or concerns related to COVID-19.

Respectfully,
Sheriff Duane E. Burgess

THE JOHNSON COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE RECOMMENDS PARENTS CHECK THE SEX OFFENDER REGISTRY PRIOR TO TRICK-OR-TREATING.With the Halloween Holiday upon us, the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office is urging parents to utilize on-line tools to know the identity of registered Sex Offenders in the areas of where they plan to trick-or-treat. The Sex Offender Registry is available on-line for residents of Johnson County. The registry allows parents to conduct a search prior to trick-or-treating to prevent their children from visiting the home of a registered Sex Offender while trick-or-treating. Currently there are one hundred forty-three (143) registered Sex Offenders residing in Johnson County; fifty three (53) of which are Sexually Violent Predators and thirty one (31) of which are classified as Offenders Against Children. According to the United States Department of Justice, eighty percent (80%) of all addresses have at least one Sex Offender living within one mile. Forty-five percent (45%) of sexual assault victims are under 12, and seventy-five percent (75%) of victims know their attacker. Over half of all sexual assaults occur within one mile of the victim’s home. The Johnson County Sheriff’s Office, as well as all of Indiana’s Sheriffs, utilize OffenderWatch Sex Offender Management System to manage and monitor the whereabouts of these convicted offenders. The site can be accessed through the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office website, which is located at www.JohnsonCountySheriff.com. Once on the website, information about specific offenders can be obtained by entering the offender’s name or searching for potential offenders within a specified radius of any address of interest. Address radiuses of 1/4, 1/2, 1, or 2 miles can be checked for potential offenders. In addition, citizens can register for e-mail alerts that will notify them if a Sex Offender moves within the selected radius. The Sheriff’s Office encourages the public to utilize these tools to help ensure the safety of children.The Johnson County Sheriff’s Office Sex Registry Division works diligently to ensure that all of our 143 registered Sex Offenders are registered properly. Home and work addresses are checked on a regular basis. All complaints or inquiries are addressed quickly and handled in a professional manner. If criminal charges are warranted, they are forwarded to the Johnson County Prosecutors Office. People of Johnson County need to be vigilant in knowing who lives near them. The Johnson County Sheriff’s Office has many tools that can be used to find out where Sex Offenders live. Offender Watch is a great tool that you can use by entering an address and/or radius that you plan on visiting before you go out and trick-or-treat. This helps to determine if any areas and/or addresses need to be avoided. As stated before Sex Offenders who register in Johnson County are checked on at home and their work place if it is in Johnson County as well. We want all people to feel safe in Johnson County.Specific questions or complaints regarding the Sex and Violent Offender Registry can be directed the Registry’s Coordinator, Deputy Laural Taylor at (317) 346-4433 or E-mail at LTaylor@co.johnson.in.usRespectfully,Sheriff Duane E. Burgess ... See MoreSee Less
