[ARCHIVED] Boulder City Swears in Four during Ceremony

Swearing in Ceremony - Chaplains

BOULDER CITY – The revival of a much-needed police program and promotion of two police department employees highlighted a swearing-in ceremony on July 11 in Boulder City. 

Chief of Police Timothy Shea welcomed two new Boulder City Police Department (BCPD) Chaplains, Sr. Chaplain Michael Thrower and Sr. Chaplain Ryan Michael Creelman. “It is an honor to have these team members sworn in today and we’re happy to reinstate the Chaplain Program,” Chief Shea said. “The Chaplain Program has been around for years but fell into disrepair for a while. Given the stresses our officers and the community face, it is a good time to reinstate the program.” 

The new Chaplains will assist officers in dealing with victims of trauma or major life events when faith-based assistance is requested. Chaplain Thrower currently serves on the Las Vegas Metro Volunteer Program (MVP), is a Citizens’ Academy member for North Las Vegas Police Department and serves as lead Chaplain for the Clark County School District. Chaplain Creelman is the Spiritual Director and Corporate Chaplain for Westcare Foundation and the Spiritual Director for Veterans Village. 

Ruby Perkins was sworn in as the new Police Support Services Manager after being promoted from BCPD Communications and Records Supervisor. Lauren Christian, a former part-time Emergency Dispatcher, took the oath to serve in a full-time Emergency Dispatcher position. “Support staff and dispatchers are an important part of our department,” added Chief Shea. “The community is fortunate to have their dedication and commitment.”
