The Johnson County Sheriff’s Office is initiating emergency operating procedures for tonight through Tuesday the 26th due to the severe predicted winter storm. This procedure will affect non-injury accidents and towing of abandoned vehicles.
If anyone is involved in a non-injury accident, the Sheriff’s Office asks that they move their vehicle off the roadway and walk in their report to the Johnson County Courthouse at 125 N. Cherry in Olathe or the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office Operations building at 27747 West 159th Street in New Century, Kansas north of Gardner, Kansas. The Sheriff’s Office will respond to all injury accidents as normal.
As part of emergency operations, the Sheriff’s Office will be towing cars at the owner’s expense, which were left on the roadway from the last storm. This will include major thoroughfares and side roads.
