Canine Unit


Master Police Officer Warren and K-9 Maus

Office Smith and K-9 Alex

The Boone Police Department has had an active Canine Program since 1990. We currently have two canine/handler teams, Master Patrol Officer Justin Warren with “Maus” and Police Officer Andrew Smith with “Alex”.

The Canine Program provides a unique tool within the patrol division. Patrol division canines have been instrumental in locating hidden narcotics, finding fleeing suspects, locating lost persons and protecting officers and citizens. MPO Warren and Maus are available for presentations to local civic, church, school or other group’s that would like to learn more about our dogs and his capabilities. If you are interested in a presentation or need further information, please contact by email Captain Andy Le Beau or call 828-268-6927.
