Johnson returns to work in ‘limited capacity’

Hodgenville Police Chief Steven Johnson was suspended with pay earlier this month after being charged with official misconduct.

He returned to work last week in a “limited” capacity, according to Mayor Kenny DeVore.

His job duties include public safety and code enforcement. His police powers are restored in emergency situations or when requested by acting-Chief Marcus Jackson or Mayor DeVore – or if he witnesses a crime.

Mayor DeVore said he “ran it by the attorneys” before bringing Johnson back to the force.
