The Corona Virus emergency has had an effect on our county. There have been at least 30 known cases from Wabaunsee County with at least two individuals being hospitalized. The Wabaunsee County Courthouse has re-opened to the public. Consumers are asked to check in and maintain social distancing. Each office has a limit on how many individuals may be present at a time. Most services can be conducted on-line or over the phone. The sheriff’s office is still working around the clock. Some of the calls for service will be conducted over the phone and when we meet with the public we will try to conduct some of the business outside. There will be no jail visitation until further notice. This is a situation that most of us have never experienced and the conditions are changing often. We ask everyone to be safe and use precautions as ordered or suggested by the Health Department and public officials. Be aware and keep yourselves informed with accurate and factual information. We have a large number of those considered to be part of the vulnerable population in our county. Assistance is available for those in need. The county public transportation services will assist in getting medications and assistance to those in need. If you are in need during this time of national emergency and do not know where to turn contact the sheriff’s office at 785-765-3323 and we will assist in locating a service provider. Let’s help each other as we can.
The Wabaunsee County Emergency Operations Center continues to be activated and is working to identify and assist with all needs. Public health; emergency services; school; city; medical and other officials have been in continuous contact with each other during this national emergency. Help is available to persons in need and if you are in need or know a family that is struggling right now please make that contact. We are all in this together and we are all working together until this situation is resolved.

There has been an increase in burglaries and thefts. Please contact if you notice suspicious persons or vehicles in your area.

Continued Reminder: There has also been reports of scammers calling individuals wanting personal information and or trying to solicit false goods and services regarding the Covid-19. Do not give these callers the time of day and protect your personal information. Scammers and frauds will use any situation to try to steal from you. Be aware and informed.

The Wabaunsee County Sheriff’s Office assisted with the Harvester Food Distribution and with the Drive-By recognition of the Wabaunsee High Class of 2020. We are very happy and proud to support these efforts.

The Mission Valley class of 2020 will be conducting a “Viking Voyage” on May 30th and the sheriff’s office will be assisting with that also.

I would like to extend a “big thank-you” to the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office for their assistance in the investigation and arrest on a recent child abuse case. Sometimes these type of cases can be difficult to investigate when the victim is very young and unable to communicate. Jackson County Sheriff Tim Morse offered assistance from his office and the help was greatly appreciated.

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.
Rob Hoskins
Sheriff Wabaunsee County Kansas.
