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.

Additional Information:

Deputies have cleared the scene at the 4300 block of Burlington Pike.

The deceased have been identified as a husband and wife from Petersburg, KY. The next of kin for the male, James Harrison, 31, and his wife, Cheyenne Harrison, 30, have been notified. They were operating a blue, 2005 Kia Sedona minivan.

The driver of a red, 2016 Honda Civic has been identified as Kristin Wallace, 54, Florence. Wallace sustained non-life threatening injuries.

The driver of a yellow, 2000 Freightliner dump truck has been identified as Bernard Vaske, 46, Burlington. Vaske sustained non-life threatening injuries.

Preliminary indications suggest that Wallace was traveling in the Honda Civic, westbound on Burlington Pike behind an uninvolved SUV. The SUV slowed to make a right hand turn into a nearby driveway which caused Wallace to also slow her speeds on the roadway. The Kia Sedona, operated by either James or Cheyenne Harrison, approached the rear of the Honda Civic at an unknown speed. It’s believed that one of the Harrisons attempted to avoid a collision with the rear of Wallace’s vehicle, but was unable to. The Kia Sedona struck the rear, driver’s side bumper of the Honda Civic as the Sedona crossed the double yellow line into the eastbound lane of Burlington Pike. The Freightliner dump truck was traveling eastbound on Burlington Pike and struck the Sedona head on. The impact caused the dump truck and Sedona to overturn on the roadway. The Harrisons had to be extricated from their vehicle and were pronounced deceased on the scene.

The roadway was shut down for approximately four (4) hours this afternoon and has since been reopened. Investigators haven’t determined yet who was driving the Kia Sedona.
