Boulder City Police Chief Thomas Finn, Public Safety
Last Saturday the walking tour of the new Hoover Dam Bypass Bridge took place, and despite the predictions of up to 40,000 visitors, less than 15,000 people took advantage of the opportunity.
Law enforcement agencies from throughout the Las Vegas Valley developed and participated in a well-coordinated plan to control traffic and ensure the safety of the participants.
I worked the entire day on the road with 15 other Boulder City officers assigned to work the event, and I’m happy to report that it was a flawless day. Boulder City’s finest heavily patrolled the truck route and issued dozens of speeding citations to those who ignored the 45 mph posted speed limit. Radar and laser enforcement sent out a loud and clear message that exceeding the speed limit will not be tolerated.
