Change on the Horizon
After 30 years of police work, Chief Turk has decided to take off his gun belt and retire. Prior to coming to Boulder City in 1986, Chief Turk had worked for 10 years in Oklahoma City as a police officer. Once here, he began rather quickly moving up the ranks, ultimately holding the position as Boulder City’s Chief of Police.

While Chief he was part of many dynamic changes ranging from the institution of motor cycles, the K-9 Program, tasers and the Certification of Integrity to name a few.

While many of these programs have allowed us to increase the services we provide to the community, many opportunities for change exist. By the time this article goes to press a new police chief for the City Boulder City may have already been selected, slated to start February 15, 2006. The opportunities for Boulder City are endless as we move forward with our pursuit to advance your quality of life. The challenges are many as we plan for the opening of the bridge while awaiting a bypass, dealing with the abuse of illegal narcotics, residential traffic issues, the hiring of new personnel, as well as retaining existing employees. These are a few of the challenges facing the new chief.

A Change within the Boulder City Police Depart-ment will certainly take place. As a stakeholder in your quality of life, take a few minutes out of your day to meet the new chief and share your thoughts.
