Joining Forces campaign aims to catch speeders

Boulder City Police Department is joining forces with other law enforcement agencies to help stop aggressive drivers and speeders as part of a statewide effort.

This Joining Forces campaign is put on by the Nevada Department of Transportation, Office of Traffic Safety, and its goal is to increase high-visibility patrols through Wednesday, March 13, to prevent drivers from speeding.

“We often find that the sight of an officer’s vehicle on the highway causes motorists to slow down and drive with caution,” said Police Chief Tim Shea. “Funding for the extra patrols through Joining Forces could save lives.”

The extra patrols will be within Boulder City limits on Interstate 11 and U.S. Highway 95.

The police department received a $42,500 grant from NDOT’s Office of Traffic Safety to participate in Joining Forces.
