It is rare when a day passes that the dispatch center does not receive a call in regard to a disheveled individual acting abnormal, panhandling, looking cold or camping behind a building or in a ditch.

Dallas Robinson suits up like a firefighter at the Boulder City Hero &First Responder Appreciation Day on Saturday at Bicentennial Park.
It’s easy to rest on our laurels when the other side of the country is the place dealing with floods, fires or other natural disasters. Keep in mind that not every emergency happens with notice and good preparation ahead of time will make a huge difference when it really counts.

Boulder City Animal Control is here to help us with our pets. Our animal control division is staffed by two full-time officers. Our animal control officers certainly have lots of work to do, because animals need care 24/7.
