The Village of Johnson City covers 4.3 square miles and has a resident population of 15,535 people. Johnson City is home to a regional medical center and the largest indoor shopping mall in the region. Johnson City has experienced a great deal of commercial growth in recent years and, due to our central location, is the commuting hub of the Triple Cities. As a result, the Village's daily population swells to between 40,000 and 50,000 people.    

Mission Statement  

The mission of the Johnson City Police Department is the safeguarding of all citizens' lives and property, the preservation of their constitutional rights, and to maintain a high standard of quality of life for all of Johnson City's residents and visitors. The police department will strive to develop a police service that meets unique neighborhood needs by combining law enforcement activities with progressive crime prevention strategies.   

Future Challenges  

One of the greatest challenges facing the department in the future continues to be the drug problem and associated crime. The proliferation of drugs in our community has had a profound impact on many neighborhoods and has caused property crime such as burglary and larceny to increase. Combating the drug problem will continue to be one of our highest priorities.
