[ARCHIVED] City following Johnson County COVID-19 recommendations


March 16, 2020

The Spring Hill Police Department is closely monitoring the development of coronavirus (COVID-19) and taking necessary precautions for the safety and well-being of the community we serve.

Preventive measures are now in place to reduce the risk of exposure to you, your loved ones, and our first responders.

In an abundance of caution, the Spring Hill Police Department will be suspending the following services for the next 60 days:

  • Fingerprinting Services
  • Ride-Alongs
  • Community engagement activities
  • Use of/access within police facilities (the policy lobby will remain open)

In the event of an emergency or of a crime in progress, please continue to call 911. Responding officers may take extra precautions such as wearing personal protective equipment and avoiding physical contact such as a handshake or high five.

In non-emergency incidents, where an in-person interaction is required, officers may request these interactions occur outdoors.

Those reporting non-emergency incidents are encouraged to call the non-emergency number for Johnson County Dispatch at (913) 782-0720 and provide your number and reason for the report. An officer from the Spring Hill Police Department may instead, call you and take your report over the phone.

During the next several weeks, we ask for your understanding and patience as this information is subject to change. Updates will be provided as they become available.

Records, Property and the Police Lobby will maintain normal operating hours.

The Spring Hill Police Department remains committed to serving you to the best of our ability. We appreciate our community’s efforts to slow the spread of the virus, by practicing social distancing, avoiding close contact with those who are sick, and by frequently washing hands and disinfecting frequently touched objects.

A letter from Mayor Steven Ellis: 

Fellow Residents,

Like our surrounding communities we, too, have been closely monitoring and working with other units of government in establishing policies and responses to the COVID-19 pandemic.  Johnson County Government has declared a county-wide emergency, which we have posted online.  Though we have no such events scheduled at present, we will keep you updated if any future events may be impacted and remind you that all city services remain available.

For many, though, this can be a time of uncertainty and anxiety.  Worries about what may happen can lead to concerns for some about access to food, healthcare, or other services usually taken for granted.  These concerns can be overwhelming for some in our community, making it more important than ever to keep in touch with our elder neighbors, those who may have mobility concerns, and those neighbors who may be struggling with other issues and need a little extra help.  Our nearly 163-year history is rich with friends and neighbors banding together to help and support one-another … it is the reason why over 7,000 people have chosen to call Spring Hill home.

— Steven Ellis

City of Spring Hill impact

Out of an abundance of caution, we are following the recommendations of Johnson County regarding COVID-19. At this time, we are not accepting new reservations for the Spring Hill Civic Center and the Spring Hill Community Center. Those with existing rentals will be contacted by City staff. We plan to evaluate this matter again in two weeks.

Spring Hill City Hall will NOT close at this time. However, we are encouraging residents to conduct City business in other ways:

If you have any general questions, please call us 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday at (913) 592-3664 or email
