The Boone County Courthouse Division is responsible for the safety of elected officials, employees, and visitors to the courthouse and three other county buildings located in downtown Lebanon.
Courthouse deputies investigate complaints, maintain order, screen visitors, and provide police services to the public as needed. Deputies apprehend law violators by serving warrants and making arrests at sentencing. They investigate and document incidents that occur on county property and frequently act as liaison officers for the sheriff’s office with the public and employees. Deputies also guard inmates who are transported to the courthouse for hearings.
