The Boone County Sheriff’s Office, located in Northern Kentucky, serves a broad and diverse population of over 110,000 residents across 256 square miles. Boone County borders Southwest Ohio, Southeast Indiana, and the Ohio River.  Boone County serves as a conduit for three (3) major US Interstate systems (I–71, I–75, and I–275). The closest major city, Cincinnati, OH, is only a fifteen (15) minute drive from the borders of Boone County. The above demographics also represent the ability of the regional population to easily traverse local and state boundaries. The combined populations of the three Northern Kentucky Counties (Boone, Campbell, and Kenton Counties) and Hamilton County, OH (Cincinnati) serve a population of over one million people.
