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, March 14, 2019, Boone County Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to the 3100 block of Limaburg Road in Hebron for a report of a pedestrian that had been struck by a vehicle.

A black Chevrolet Tahoe was traveling southbound on Limaburg Road when a 14 year old female attempted to run across the roadway with heavy traffic present. The Tahoe could not stop in time to avoid a collision and struck the juvenile with the front of the SUV. After the collision, the juvenile was initially unconscious but came to. The victim sustained hip/pelvic injuries and was transported to Cincinnati Children’s Hospital.

Witnesses stated that three (3) female juveniles were walking on the sidewalk when the first juvenile crossed over Limaburg, attempted to run back but stopped in the middle of the road and then turned again, successfully crossing the road. The first juvenile was nearly struck by another vehicle. Seconds later, the second juvenile ran across Limaburg and was struck by the SUV. The third juvenile did not attempt to cross Limaburg.

Speed is not suspected to be a factor in this investigation and the juveniles were walking from Conner Middle School.
