Mission Statement

It is the mission of the Boone County Sheriff Department to develop a highly trained, efficient, and professional law enforcement officer in order to provide outstanding service to the citizens of Boone County, the Commonwealth of Kentucky, and our Country. In order to reach this goal, I have attempted to build an organization with outstanding individuals that clearly display high moral integrity coupled with excellent capabilities and the drive to work with pride to accomplish this goal. I have long recognized that outstanding accomplishments can be obtained when each member of the department not only understand the goals and objectives of the department but also identifies with them to the extent that ownership of these goals and objectives are shared by all.

Public service is not limited to a chosen group or to individuals. The Boone County Sheriff’s Department is committed to the community regardless of age, race, religion, sexual preference, socioeconomic background, or any other factor. Discrimination of any form will not be tolerated within the Boone County Sheriff’s Department.

Along with the responsibility of providing firm and fair law enforcement services to the public comes the duty of fiscal responsibility. The Boone County Sheriff’s Department is committed to finding new and innovative ways to increase technology and manpower, prevent duplication of services within the Sheriff’s Department, and to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of the department by making clear concise decisions that will benefit the community as a whole.

Our mission is never ending and every employee must strive to achieve our goals each and every day in order to serve the public in the manner in which they expect and deserve.

On Thursday, January 16, 2020 at approximately 9:30 AM, Boone County Sheriff’s Office deputies were dispatched to St. Henry High School after school administrators were made aware of two (2) threatening messages that were posted to social media by a student.

The student, male, 15, was present at school when deputies arrived. Deputies learned that the student had posted the threatening messages to his Snapchat Story the night before. He went on to admit that the reason he made the threats was because other students were being mean to his friends.

The first threatening image showed a pistol with a caption, “yall really want to talk [expletive] pull up then.” He received the picture of the pistol on Snapchat from his cousin who lives out of state. He added the threatening caption before posting the image to his own Snapchat Story. Deputies later confirmed that the student didn’t possess any type of gun while at school, nor does he have access to any guns at home.

The second threatening image was a pocket knife with a caption, “You will get stabbed fake people are snitches”. He later admitted to possessing the pocket knife while on school property. School administrators confiscated the knife this morning from the student’s locker.

The student was taken into custody and charged with Terroristic Threatening 2nd Degree, a Class D Felony. He was lodged at the Campbell Juvenile Detention Center per a judge’s order.

On Friday, January 03, 2020, Boone County Sheriff’s Office deputies were dispatched to the intersection of Verona Mudlick and Brown Road for a reported collision where the driver had crashed into an embankment and fled the scene. Deputies later learned that the male subject in question had just burglarized one (1) residence on Brown Road and it was later discovered that three (3) additional homes along Verona Mudlick were burglarized as well.

Once confronted by the homeowner, Konerman fled north in his vehicle on Brown Road which resulted in the single vehicle collision. Once Konerman fled the scene, he then went on to burglarize two (2) additional homes along the 3100 – 3300 block of Verona Mudlick. Konerman was confronted at each residence before fleeing on foot to the 13600 block of Carr Road.

He then drove the stolen truck to the 13700 block of Carr Road where he drove through a wrought iron gate before getting the truck stuck along the roadside. He abandoned the truck and fled on foot. A homeowner of a previously burglarized home later located Konerman on his walking on his property and confronted him.
