The Johnsonville Police Department provides twenty-four hour per day coverage with only five officers including the Chief of Police. Due to the very low call volume, the city is staffed with only one officer on duty at any given time. The low incidence of crime also affords the agency with the opportunity to provide services that most law enforcement agencies no longer provide such as daily business escorts and vehicle lock out services. The department has invested approximately $100,000 in state of the art equipment during the past three years through grants and other funding sources other than tax revenues.
Although the City’s emergency calls are routed through Florence County Central Dispatch, the Police Department is staffed by one full time employee who serves as the department’s Clerk, Victim/Witness Advocate, Clerk of Court (Police) and as a certified Jailor for the short term holding cell.
The officers of the Johnsonville Police Department serve as ambassadors to the City as they maintain high visibility to visitors and local citizens alike and are always willing to give added value with their services delivered.
