Boone County Sheriff's Department

COVID-19 Changes Jail Operations

The COVID-19 pandemic is necessitating many changes in all facets of society. The Court of the 13th Judicial Circuit was forced to modify its procedures for hearing cases. Likewise, the Boone County Jail has had to adapt to this fluid situation. For the safety of citizens, our staff and the detainee population, the Boone County Jail, effective immediately, has canceled all civilian entry into the Jail facility that is not required to maintain Jail operations. This includes canceling all visitation for friends, family, attorneys, P&P, Court Services, A.A., N.A., Jail Ministry, etc. The public lobby entrance to the Jail will remain open for bonding purposes. This will remain in effect until further notice.


COVID-19 Changes Services Operations

All individuals entering the public areas of the Sheriff’s Department are requested to wear a face mask. Face masks are required for anyone being fingerprinted.

Beginning Friday, September 4th, 2020 the Sheriff’s Department will suspend indefinitely Fingerprinting Services to the general public except those as related to Conceal Carry permits. These CCW applications and renewals as well as Sex Offender Registration will continue without additional changes.
