The Boone County Sheriff’s Office is committed to the youth of our community. Many deputies are committed to volunteering at school events or becoming coaches in the school systems. One of our main programs is our DARE program that we provide in the schools. The DARE program is an education program that seeks to prevent use of controlled drugs, membership in gangs, and violent behavior.
Another program that the Boone County Sheriff’s Office is proud to a part of is the Indiana Sheriffs Association Youth Leadership Camp. The Indiana Sheriffs Leadership Camp, founded in 1980, was established by sheriffs in order to aid and enhance the development of the state’s youth. Originally called the Indiana Sheriffs Career Camp, the camp’s name was changed in 2003 to go along with a new curriculum. The program is designed to achieve three basic objectives. First, the sheriffs want to foster a stronger relationship between our state’s youth and the men and women who enforce the laws. Second, the sheriffs want to give children, who ordinarily would not have the opportunity, a chance for a summer camp experience. Third, to give youth a chance to build character and inspire leadership skills. Sheriffs and deputies spend a great deal of time with the kids. Many of the deputies conduct demonstrations in the fields of boat and water safety, K-9 demonstrations, defensive tactics and leadership skills, just to mention a few.
In addition, the Boone County Sheriff’s Office participates in the Teen Academy and 911 Camp. The Boone County Teen Academy was started in 2007 for Boone County students, ages 12 to 17. The Teen Academy is a week-long summer camp. usually in June. Students will participate in classroom and hands-on training. The Boone County Sheriff’s Office partners with Lebanon Fire Department, Boone County Emergency Management, and Indiana National Guard. All students will receive a class tee shirt, earn a course certificate, and participate in graduation ceremonies. Instructors are active-duty law enforcement and fire department officers. Instruction takes place at the Boone County Sheriff’s Office and Fire Training Facility
