About Steve Howe:

Steve Howe is a native Kansan, growing up in Salina. Steve graduated from Washburn University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in both Criminal Justice and Political Science in 1985. Shortly after graduation, he entered Washburn Law School with a goal of becoming a prosecutor. This led to his internships in the office of then Kansas Attorney General Robert Stephan and in the Shawnee County District Attorney’s Office.

Steve graduated from the Washburn University School of Law in 1988. Following graduation, Steve honed his prosecutorial skills as an assistant district attorney in Shawnee County. Steve's record of performance in Shawnee County led to his becoming an assistant district attorney in Johnson County in 1991, where he prosecuted a myriad of cases touching on virtually all aspects of criminal law. During those 15 years, he supervised several units within the office and was instrumental in the establishment of the office’s consumer fraud/white collar investigation unit in 2002. He is a widely recognized expert in the prosecution of those who abuse dependent and elder adults and his expertise in this area led to appearances before the Kansas Legislature while spearheading the successful passage of legislation protecting the most vulnerable in our community.

Steve left the Johnson County District Attorney’s Office in early 2007 and entered private practice with The Jones Law Firm in Overland Park, Kansas. Unable to shake his passion for justice, Steve continued to prosecute violations of the Kansas Consumer Protection Act through civil actions against those who seek to take advantage of his fellow Kansans. In 2008, with 18 years of experience as a prosecutor, scores of prosecutions and over 90 jury trials, Steve successfully ran for and was elected Johnson County District Attorney. Steve ran unopposed in both 2012 and 2016,  he is running for re-election in 2020. Now, in his third term, he is continuing to work with law enforcement and partner agencies to provide better service to victims and witnesses.

Steve has spearheaded several legislative changes to help make the people of Johnson County safe.
They include the push for changes to protect older adults and increase penalties for abuse.

In reacting to a U.S. Supreme Court decision, he helped lead a call for a special session of the Kansas Legislature, which helps keep murderers who have received a “Hard 50” sentence behind bars.

Steve and members of his staff take pride on spending time at various public outreach events and fundraisers.  In 2013, Steve was asked to chair a capital campaign to expand Safehome’s domestic violence shelter.  He is on the Board of Directors for Sunflower House and the Advisory Board for MOCSA.

Steve and the rest of the criminal justice agencies have worked hard over the last 12 years to make Johnson County one of the most effective and progressive Counties in the Country.

A Johnson County resident since 1991, Steve is committed to providing an effective and efficient office focused on protecting the people of Johnson County.  Steve resides in Shawnee with his wife, Cyndi, where they raised their four children.

COVID-19 Statement

Centerfire Cares

Here at Centerfire, safety is always at the forefront of our decision making and is our top priority. The spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) is no exception, and we are taking steps to minimize the risk of exposure for both staff and clientele.
 
We take pride in the cleanliness of our facility, and extra attention will be applied to regular cleaning, especially in areas that see high volumes of use. Our staff has been directed to engage in frequent hand washing with warm water and soap, as well as adherence to all guidelines set forth by the Centers for Disease Control
 
While at Centerfire, we respectfully ask our customers to:
·         Wash your hands with soap and warm water in addition to using the De-Lead wipes provided in the white and blue drums. 
·         Bring your own ear protection, as rental ear protection requires sanitization by way of disinfectant wipes after every use. This is something we’ve always done, but supply shortages are being reported on disinfectant wipes. We stocked up in advance, but resupply is not 100% certain.
·         Use the provided tongs when picking up cookies.
·         And most importantly, please stay home if you think you have a compromised immune system or are sick.
 
Please know that while we continue to monitor the situation, we have no current plans on closing because of COVID-19. Normal range walk in-shooting, classes, lessons, and sales will go on as planned. Should that change, we will make a follow-up announcement.
