Home safety may not be as big of a priority for most Johnson County homeowners as it should be. After all, it is the most populous county in Kansas, home to more than 580,000 residents. It also has the highest median household income and highest per-capita income in the state. In fact, it is repeatedly listed among the best counties in the United States by several online and offline media sources, including USA Today and Money magazine.
According to the 2017 Kansas Crime Index reported by the Kansas Bureau of Investigation, burglaries in the state are 19% below the 10‐yr average. Burglary has been on a steady decline since 2011, and the totals for 2017 were the lowest in over 15 years.
On paper, it looks like Johnson County is as safe as it can be. However, while it is an area where more financially stable families live, it is not free of crime. For instance, Johnson County home safety has been compromised by burglars at least 15 times in the last six months. Not only that, but there has been 43 instances of theft and 20 cases of vandalism. The KBI also reported are several assault, shooting and arrest cases.
This goes to show that despite — or perhaps because of — the affluence of the county, it is not immune to crime or criminals. No place is. So families in Johnson County and everywhere else should take every measure to ensure that their homes are protected.
