Meet the Sheriff

Tommie Johnson III

Email the Sheriff mail

Oklahoma County Sheriff Tommie Johnson III is an Oklahoma City native and a decorated law enforcement professional.  The son of a grocery store butcher, Johnson attended Oklahoma City Public Schools his entire life.  He went to Hillcrest Elementary; Northeast Middle School; and graduated from U.S. Grant High School where he and his wife, Amanda, were classmates.

Johnson was an all-state baseball player at Grant and played at East Central University where he earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Exercise Science with a minor in Biology.

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 lifesaving award.

With a heart for kids, Johnson has been a leader on school safety issues.  In 2019, 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.  That is why Johnson chose to be sworn in as Sheriff at his high school alma-mater:  To send the message that, with hard work, you can accomplish anything!

Johnson grew up in Antioch Baptist Church and is now a member of Life Church, both in Oklahoma City.  He and his wife, Amanda have been married since 2014 and have two sons.
