The Boone Police Department has maintained a dedicated effort in the area of narcotics enforcement since the early 1980’s. The philosophy of the Narcotics Unit is to use all available resources and technology to apprehend persons involved in the possession and distribution of controlled substances. We believe that our responsibility does not end with the local apprehension, but will strive to cooperate with other authorities to eliminate the sources of supply for drugs coming to our jurisdiction. Our effort is enhanced through close cooperation with local, state and federal agencies. Currently, one sergeant and two investigators are assigned full-time to the Narcotics Unit, but they work closely with other units in the department. As a part of our community service, the Boone Police Department offers drug and substance abuse education tailored to the needs of your business or organization.
