It is with great sadness that The Jefferson Chronicle notes the passing of retired Jefferson Township Police Sergeant Joseph Johnson, who served our community with honor. Our thoughts are with the Johnson Family during this difficult time.

The Jefferson Township Police Department posted to their official Facebook page, the following statement: 

“It is with deepest regret, the Jefferson Township Police Department announces the passing of retired Jefferson Police Sergeant Joseph Johnson.

Sgt. Johnson enjoyed a long career with the Jefferson Township Police Department, retiring in March 2018, after 29 years of service to the Jefferson Township Community. 

He will be missed.”
