K-9 Unit

The Boulder City Police Department's (BCPD) K-9 unit formed in November of 2001, is modeled after the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department's (LVMPD or Metro) K-9 program.  Metro K-9 officers  provide initial training to our handlers and their dogs and afterwards serve as mentors and advisors.

On the Streets

If you have any questions about the K-9 Unit, please feel free to contact Officer Alan Nutzman. If you see Alan on the street and he's not involved in a traffic stop or a pedestrian contact, he will gladly let you meet and pet his partner and answer whatever questions you may have.
