Rotary Club of Okla. City Preparedness Plan

Oklahoma City native Tommie Johnson won the office of Oklahoma County Sheriff.  Johnson, a Republican, lives in southwest Oklahoma City with his wife, Amanda, and their two children. A law enforcement veteran, Johnson currently serves with the Norman Police Department.

The son of a grocery store butcher, Johnson attended Oklahoma City public schools his entire life.  We went to Hillcrest Elementary, Northeast Middle School and graduated from U.S. Grant High School, where he and his wife, Amanda, were classmates.  Amanda now works in the insurance industry as an underwriter.

Johnson was an all-state baseball player at Grant and played at East Central University, where he earned his college degree.

Johnson grew up in Antioch Baptist Church and is now a member of Fifth Street Baptist, both in Oklahoma City. Although he was born into a Democrat family, as he grew up, Johnson realized his conservative principles most closely matched the Republican Party.  He is a member in the inaugural class of the J. Rufus Fears Program for conservative studies at the Oklahoma Council of Public Affairs and was voted president of the class by his peers.  Johnson also serves as a Republican Precinct Chairman.

Johnson began his law enforcement career with the University of Oklahoma Police Department.  In 2015, he joined the Norman Police Department, where he has been promoted to the rank of Master Police Officer and was recently honored with the City of Norman Police Department’s Centennial Award.  Johnson has served on the hiring board, bargaining committee and uniform committee, in addition to earning the Department’s life-saving award.

With a heart for kids, Johnson has been a leader on school safety issues.  Last year he testified before a Capitol committee in support of school safety legislation, and he appeared in a safety video produced by the State Department of Education.  He serves as a youth sports coach and regularly volunteers as a mentor for at risk kids in local elementary schools, where he especially tries to be a positive male influence in the lives of young boys.
