CJ’s deputy gets new phone, sheriff seeks volunteers
Cave Junction’s contract deputy Brad Johnson now has a cell phone to receive non- emergency phone calls from Illinois Valley residents. That number is 541-218-5164.
“This phone will be on during Deputy Johnson’s work day,” said Josephine County Sheriff Dave Daniel. “People can leave messages there, but of course, if there’s an emergency, they should call 911.”
Johnson has an office in Cave Junction’s substation, though he spends most of his time patrolling, according to Daniel. While Johnson is always connected to the Sheriff Office’s dispatch in Grants Pass, the new cell phone will help him keep track of the action in the Valley and provide citizens a way to get information to Johnson quickly.
Cave Junction’s substation, manned by volunteers, is located in the back of the City Hall building, with an entrance on Kerby Avenue. The substation is open on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., and on Tuesday and Thursday, from 1 to 4 p.m. The phone number there is 541-592-5151. More volunteers are always needed to help keep the substation open. ...
