Boone County, Indiana Sheriff's Office - Sheriff Mike Nielsen

Training Announcements


The Boone County Sheriff's Office is proud to be one of the few law enforcement agencies in the country that allows citizens to train alongside military and law enforcement. In addition to our citizen handgun courses, we are again bringing in Steve Tarani, the number one instructor in the country regarding personal security and safety, for Protective Agents (Live Fire) June 22-23, 2019 and Hands to Guns (Live Fire) October 19-20, 2019. Doc Gunn is also coming back for his one-day Tactical Treatment of Gunshot Wounds on July 27, 2019. We are also excited to bring EAG Tactical back to Boone County. As many of you know, Pat Rogers was a dear friend to our department and trained at our facility for many years. Brian Canova has now taken over EAG Tactical after we lost Pat. He has been to our facility and is a fantastic trainer. EAG Tactical will be offering Carbine 1, September 14-15, 2019. Our citizens classes, Principles of the Defensive Handgun, will be offered on the following dates. Please contact Joy Stewart at with any questions.
