Kozicek Gives Sheriff's Report To Jo Co Commission

Johnson County Sheriff Steve Kozisek gave his monthly report for March to the county commissioners at their last meeting.

Kozisek said his office had 409 total incidents, 76 requiring reports to be written and filed. Ten of the incidents were felonies.

The sheriff's office made 25 total arrests last month, 17 of which were misdemeanors and seven were felonies.

Thirty-six traffic stops by the sheriff's office were made in March, six resulting in citations.

During March the department served 84 civil papers, up from 50 the previous month.

Eleven concealed carry permits were processed in March, up from eight in February, a trend that Kozisek said is continuing.

Inmate population in the justice center averaged 37 per day during the month, 33 males and four females on average.
The facility had 28 book-ins, which were 21 males and seven females.

Kozisek said the recent jury trials at the judicial center has averaged 62 hours of overtime for both detention staff and security staff, and suggested to the commissioners it is something that should be looked at during the budget session. It isn't a worry at this point, Kozisek said, because staff is using comp time instead of requesting overtime pay.
