BOULDER CITY – Keeping pedestrians and drivers safe is a priority for the Boulder City Police Department (BCPD). That job was tougher last year, with 382 traffic fatalities reported in Nevada in 2021 (the highest number of deaths in 15 years).  For fiscal year 2023, BCPD will receive another grant from the Nevada Department of Public Safety, Office of Traffic Safety to support the participation in Joining Forces traffic safety campaigns during the coming year.  

This year’s award of $45,500 will help BCPD team up with other agencies in the Las Vegas Valley to keep roads safe during Joining Forces events from October 2022 through September 2023. Joining Forces is a high visibility, multi-jurisdictional statewide effort to increase safety on Nevada’s roads by increasing enforcement and awareness of traffic laws. The goal is to reduce crashes and save lives by focusing on impaired driving, distracted driving, seat belts, speed, and pedestrian safety.

The campaigns usually have officers responding in areas where incidents are most likely to happen. Since the opening of I-11 in 2018, numerous efforts have focused on speeders and distracted drivers. “Drivers who are distracted, under the influence, driving aggressively or speeding pose a threat not only to themselves but to others on the roads,” said Boulder City Police Chief Tim Shea. “We hope that by having extra patrols on the roads, drivers will exercise better judgement, slow down and drive safely.”

Boulder City Police Department receives an annual grant from the Nevada Department of Public Safety, Office of Traffic Safety to support participation in Joining Forces traffic safety campaigns during the year.

Law enforcement personnel will continue to enforce traffic safety laws year-round as part of their commitment to reduce crashes and save lives. Whether you're the driver, a passenger, or a pedestrian, Boulder City Police remind everyone to make safety a top priority.
