The Boone Police Department is looking for talented artists that would like to see their personal
design on our police vehicles!
“The Boone Police Department would like to change the look of our police cars. We are
soliciting input from the Boone community to help us. We would like to have a design that
would symbolize our community and present a professional, approachable appearance. Our
thoughts are to depict the beauty of Boone and can include our commitment to serving,
protecting and engaging in community policing. We wish to give our community a voice in this
decision and look forward to seeing what ideas come forward” stated Andy LeBeau, Boone
The design contest will begin on August 19th, and will close September 9th. We will be
accepting designs from any interested community-centered individuals (i.e. those who work,
shop, do life in Boone) who would like their art displayed on our police vehicles.
There is no age requirement for this contest. More general rules can be found at
As this is a public contest, we will be announcing the winner’s name on our website and social
media pages after the vehicle has been outfitted with the design in the coming months. The
winner will be contacted prior to the public announcement.

create visuals that people associate with Boone and the High Country. This project provides both
a unique canvas and rare opportunity to create a brand that reflects the spirit of our community
and its support for an important partner. We are excited to see the end result and know this will
be another representation of how our community supports artists and their abilities to inspire us
with their work.” stated David Jackson, President and CEO of the Boone Area Chamber of
