Boulder City Review, Dec. 19

DUI enforcement event planned

The Boulder City Police Department and other Nevada law enforcement agencies are holding a Joining Forces event from Friday, Dec. 20, to Jan. 3 aimed at preventing people from driving under the influence.

“Whether it’s a designated driver, ride share or public transportation, everyone should make sure they have alternatives in place to avoid any chance of making a bad decision that could lead to unnecessary tragedy,” said Boulder City Police Chief Tim Shea. “Make sure you are able to celebrate the holidays safely by keeping the roads safe for everyone.”

The police department is dedicating extra deputies to look for drivers under the influence. Funding for these extra patrols is made possible by a grant from the Nevada Department of Public Safety’s Office of Traffic Safety.
