About the Commissioner
Janeé Hanzlick was elected in 2019. She is the former CEO of SAFEHOME, Johnson County’s domestic violence agency, where she spent 20 years working for a safer, stronger community. She was a leader in implementing the Johnson County Lethality Assessment Program (LAP), a collaboration between the District Attorney’s Office, law enforcement and SAFEHOME, that significantly reduced domestic homicides in our county. At SAFEHOME, she also oversaw two successful facility expansions that doubled the agency’s capacity. She served as a key spokesperson to the Kansas Legislature on issues related to funding and legislation impacting victims of domestic violence and their children in Johnson County.
Other experience includes serving as the past president of the Johnson County Community Violence Action Council (COMVAC), current president of the Overland Park Rotary Club, graduate of 2007 Leadership Overland Park, and graduate of the Overland Park Citizens’ Police Academy.
