1. Where are people jailed after being arrested in Boulder City, NV?
Boulder City does not have its own jail, so arrestees who are not immediately released get transferred to the Clark County Detention Center (CCDC). The CCDC’s address is 330 South Casino Center Drive, Las Vegas, NV 89101, and reachable at (702) 671-3900. Search for inmates here.
2. How do I bail out inmates?
For inmates incarcerated at the CCDC, go to the jail’s pretrial services bail window at 330 South Casino Center Drive, Las Vegas, NV 89101. The CCDC takes cash, Visa, Mastercard, cashier’s checks, or money orders. Learn more about bailing out an inmate at the CCDC or call Pre Trial Services at (702) 671-3285.
People can also contact a bail bondsman to post bail. They typically charge 15% of the bail amount.
3. Where is the Boulder City courthouse in Nevada?
The Boulder City Courthouse is located at 505 Ave. G, Boulder City, NV 89005. Boulder City Justice Court can be reached at (702) 455-8000, and search for case information here. Boulder City Municipal Court can be reached at (702) 293-9278, and search for case information here.
Like Las Vegas and Henderson, Boulder City is an incorporated town. Anyone arrested in its incorporated area for a misdemeanor crime will have his/her cases heard in Municipal Court. All other incidents allegedly occurring in Boulder City are handled in Justice Court. Both courts share the same courtroom.
Felony charges that do not resolve in Justice Court will get bound over to the Eighth Judicial District Court. It is located at 200 Lewis Ave, Las Vegas, NV 89101, and reachable at (702) 671-4554.
4. Where is the police department?
The Boulder City Police Department is located at 1005 Arizona Street, Boulder City, NV 89005. The phone number is (702) 293-9224.
5. Who prosecutes criminal cases?

6. What are common Boulder City crimes?
The most frequently prosecuted crimes in Boulder City include battery (NRS 200.481), domestic violence (NRS 200.485), shoplifting, burglary (NRS 205.060), drug crimes, solicitation of prostitution (NRS 201.354), trespass (NRS 207.200), DUI (driving under the influence), and speeding (NRS 484B.600).
7. Can I get the charges dismissed?
Prosecutors may be persuaded to dismiss or significantly reduce criminal charges if the defense attorney can show them that their evidence is too weak, holey, and inaccurate to sustain a guilty verdict under Nevada criminal law.
8. Why should I get a lawyer?
There are three reasons why anyone being prosecuted for a criminal offense should retain a criminal lawyer:
- Defendants who retain an attorney usually never have to appear in court themselves;
- Attorneys have the training and experience to craft effective defense strategies; and
- Odds are prosecutors will give better plea bargains to defendants who have their own attorney.
