COVID-19 numbers in Watauga County are on the rise. While public health officials work with the community on prevention, the Town of Boone Police Department is among the local agencies that are charged with enforcement of Governor Cooper's Executive Orders.

This week we talk with Chief Andy LeBeau about how the Town's COVID-19 enforcement strategy and how policing during a pandemic has seen the department's operations evolve over the last several months. 

Chief LeBeau also addresses other community topics such as the department's role in ongoing discussions about racial and social injustice, bringing more diversity into the police force, and other outreach opportunities the department is focused on as they continue to protect and serve.
