BOULDER CITY K-9
"TAKING A BITE OUT OF CRIME"
The Boulder City Police Department's (BCPD) K-9 unit formed in November of 2001, is modeled after the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department's (LVMPD "Metro") K-9 program. Metro K-9 officers provide initial training to our handlers and their dogs and afterwards serve as mentors and advisors.
Our K-9 officer is Alan Nutzman, a BCPD officer since 2004 and a K-9 officer since 2009. His furry partner is Charlie, a black Labrador Retriever certified in Nevada and California as a Narcotic Detection Dog. Charlie has been highly successful since his arrival and has found considerable quantities of drugs during his short career. Charlie has been used by Las Vegas Metro Police, Hoover Dam Police, the National Park Service and the Drug Enforcement Administration.
Barry, our patrol dog, and Quest, our narcotic detector dog, both of whom were trained and handled by Officer Paul Daly, retired at the end of June. During their many years of service they assisted many law enforcement agencies, including the National Park Service, Hoover Dam Police Department, Henderson Police Department, Las Vegas Metro Police, North Las Vegas Police Department and the Drug Enforcement Administration.
If you have any questions about the K-9 Unit, please feel free to contact Officer Alan Nutzman at 293-9224. You may also email him at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you see Alan on the street and he's not involved in a traffic stop or a pedestrian contact, he will gladly let you meet and pet his partner and answer whatever questions you may have.
