DMV Services Offered at the Police Department
The Boulder City Police Department, through our Records Section, performs basic DMV services every Wednesday, by appointment. Through legislation, authored by then State Senator Jon Porter, we have been authorized and have been providing these services for several years. MaryAnn and Inez, the two outstanding employees that comprise our records section, perform this valuable DMV function. This service provides only basic DMV registration service. If you are interested, please call them at 293-9257.

Chief Finn and I have received a lot of feedback and questions as we lead up to the first Police Forum, sponsored by Starbucks. While this publication will be prepped for the printers at the time of our first forum, I want to take the time to invite you to our next Police Forum to be held on October 17th. Stay tuned for the featured topic. This Forum, much like the recent article in the Boulder City News by Chief Finn where he discussed the Norman Rockwell feeling as he walked the downtown area, is another step in our efforts at making your police department more reflective of the community. After all, as Sir Robert Peel stated back in the early 1800s, “The police are the public and the public are the police.”

The monthly forum will also provide everyone the opportunity to meet the officers that put their life on the line each and every day to serve you, the residents of Boulder City.

We hear often about everyone’s concerns relating to the current and expected levels of traffic. Chief Finn, through support from City Manager Mayes and City Council, has created a five-person traffic unit. I would like to thank Sergeant James Reed, who within a couple weeks of forming the unit was able to obtain a $22,000 grant from the State of Nevada, Office of Traffic Safety, to offset some of the personnel costs as we increase our efforts at keeping the residents, as well as the traveling public, safe on our roadways. The unit is off to a great start and certainly will be a feature at an upcoming Police Forum.
Until next month, stay safe.
