The Boone Police Department recently honored its 2018 Supervisor, Officer and non-sworn Employee of the Year.
This year, Sergeant Dennis O’Neal, Telecommunicator Bridget Kleine and Officer Justin English were recognized at a meeting of their fellow officers, at which their families were present.
Winners of these awards are chosen based on submissions by fellow officers, with the final recipients decided by Chief Dana Crawford.
Recipients are awarded this honor annually based on job performance, community involvement and their dedication to public service and the agency’s mission.
The Boone Police Department said in a statement, "Our Department publicizes these awards in the hopes that our citizens will agree with Chief Crawford’s chosen recipients and will join us in congratulating these valuable employees."
