Sgt. Joe Johnson joined OSU as a police officer in April 2021 after spending over 27 years in law enforcement in Salem, OR. Joe has always been a fan of OSU athletics, and has supported multiple sports over the years. The forming of the police department intrigued him and he wanted to be part of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. He feels privileged to now be able to serve the OSU community in the capacity of a police officer. Joe is married and has three adult children. One interesting thing about Joe is that he has been vegan for over 8 years, so choose your restaurant carefully if you have a chance to meet him for lunch.
