I am very pleased to report to you that we have a new Undersheriff in Wabaunsee County. Brett Wilson comes to us from Johnson County, Kansas where he retired in September of 2018 with a distinguished 31-year career with the sheriff’s office. Brett is a seasoned officer and investigator with a vast amount of training and experience. He and his wife Pam have located a home in Wabaunsee County. They have grown two adult daughters. Brett was raised in a small town in southern Missouri and he has country roots. Please feel free to welcome him to our county as you see him about. Brett has prior experience working in our county as he has assisted this agency with several investigations in the past few years and he grew fond of this area and this place we all call home.

Congratulations to our Wabaunsee County Charger Girls’ Basketball team on their third-place finish in the State of Kansas. We were very happy to provide an escort to the young women as they left town on their journey to Hayes, Kansas for the state tournament. We are very proud of all the young women and their accomplishments. You have made us proud.

As warm weather approaches not only will the robins return but so will the thieves and scoundrels that come over here each year to prey upon our good citizens. Be mindful of this as open sheds and unlocked vehicles are favorite targets.

As always, we ask that our citizens be aware and vigilant. Please report any and all suspicious activity. We know that we cannot do this job without your support and confidence. We thank you for that trust and support.
Be safe and be aware.

Please slow down and change lanes when approaching emergency vehicles and persons working on the side of the roadway.

I am very sad to report that Under-sheriff Darrin Stewart will be leaving the Wabaunsee County Sheriff’s Office. Darrin has been employed with the office for 13 years and he has been a very valuable asset, trusted advisor, and good friend these many years. He will be missed and we wish him good luck in his new endeavors. Thank you, Darrin, for a job well done!!!

On 01/28/2019 James Michael Amlong Jr. of St. Charles, MO was held on a warrant.
On 02/04/2019 Jamison A. Yoxall of Manhattan, Kansas was arrested for D.U.I. and Fail to Report an Accident.
On 02/10/2019 Travis Alan Kerchner of Zanesville, Ohio was held on a warrant.

Winter weather continues to be upon us and the icy road conditions make for very hazardous driving. Please remember to allow yourself plenty of time and slow down. Do not use cruise control when driving on ice; snow or in the rain.

Our corrections staff have been very busy putting a fresh coat of paint in the jail and I want to thank them for getting this project completed.

Recently, I have been asked about some of the procedures during accident investigations involving alcohol and or drugs where the driver is thought to be impaired. If the driver is not injured and/or admitted to a hospital they are tested for impairment and if they are suspected to be impaired, they are arrested and booked into the Wabaunsee County Jail. If the driver is injured and/or transported to a hospital then an officer will request that a blood sample be taken for testing. The blood test is conducted by the crime lab of the Kansas Bureau of Investigation. When the results of the blood test are made available by the Kansas Bureau of Investigation and the results show that the driver was impaired then then the report is submitted to the Wabaunsee County Attorney and a warrant is issued for the driver’s arrest. This is a time-consuming process but the incident is follow-up upon.

As always, we ask that our citizens be aware and vigilant. Please report any and all suspicious activity. We know that we cannot do this job without your support and confidence.

We thank you for that trust and support.
Be safe and be aware.

Heather Lynn‎ to Wabaunsee County Sheriff's Office
January 2 at 8:13 PM
Greetings from Bay County, Florida! My husband, Charles Hart, was pulled over this evening as we drove thru your county on our way back to Panama City Beach, Florida. The Investigator who stopped us was extremely professional and did an excellent job with us-our two sons were in the vehicle as well and it was a great opportunity for a positive interaction with a LEO for them as well. Thank you for your service!

I want to take a moment to say how proud I am of Detective Kirsch and all of the staff of the Wabaunsee County Sheriff’s Office. They have many interactions with the public daily and at times these interactions are under stressful and unpleasant circumstances. It is always nice to hear that the professional standards that are essential to maintaining the public trust are being carried out on a daily basis. All individuals should know that the staff of the Wabaunsee County Sheriff’s Office strive to treat each and every individual with dignity and respect. If there are ever any issues to the contrary, I want to be contacted and made aware.

During 2018 the Wabaunsee County Sheriff’s Office handled 4996 calls for service with was a slight increase from 2017. It was a very active year and I will be reporting on the final statics for the year soon.

As always, we ask that our citizens be aware and vigilant. Please report any and all suspicious activity. We know that we cannot do this job without your support and confidence. We thank you for that trust and support.

Be safe and be aware.
