Be a responsible dog
If you live in Broken Bow and have a dog, remember that owning a dog is not just a privilege – it’s a
BBPD officers are
often called out to handle dog complaints from the public, especially for barking and chasing dogs or dogs running at large.
Barking and chasing dogs
Broken Bow city ordinances make it unlawful for the owner of a dog to allow the dog to annoy or disturb any neighborhood
or person by loud,
continued or frequent barking, by howling
or yelping or by habitually barking at or chasing pedestrians, drivers or owners of horses or vehicles while
they are on any public sidewalk,
street or alley.
When BBPD receives
two or more written complaints from two different affected households within any 30-day period, officers will investigate
and if in their opinion the situation warrants,
the officers will notify the owner to silence and restrain the dog and a citation can be issued.
Dogs running at large
A dog running at large is defined as any dog that is not under the actual control of the owner by means of a leash,
cord, chain or other physical
restraint; is not confined within a
cage, enclosed vehicle, fenced enclosure or shelter; or is not within the real property limits of the owner and in
the owner’s presence. Owners can be cited for allowing their dogs to run at large.
on number of dogs and cats
Broken Bow city law sets a limit of four adult dogs or cats (total of eight animals) at any one time per household.
any dog or cat shall not count toward the maximum number for a period of four months after the birth of the offspring.
Only one exempt litter of cats or dogs may be
kept in a household at any one time.
Don't let your pet be a nuisance.
Owners of barking and/or chasing dogs can be cited.
Remember - Dog tags are due May 1

of the dog, acquire a city dog license (tag).
tags are due every year by May 1, but they are available yearround for $5 each at Broken Bow Police
If you haven't gotten your tags yet, stop down and pick them up at BBPD,

|Stop when lights are flashing.
From the desk of Chief Scott...
Don't pass stopped vehicles
at school crossing lights
When you are driving and see a vehicle stopped
at the flashing yellow lights at a school crossing, STOP your vehicle and do not pass the vehicle in front of you.
Chief Steve Scott said it’s been brought to his attention that some drivers are passing
vehicles that are stopped for flashing yellow lights, putting students in danger.
If a vehicle is stopped at the yellow flashing lights, assume that there are children crossing the street.
Yellow lights are activated during
hours when children are likely to be going to and from school. If you see the lights flashing, be prepared to stop.
If someone is already stopped in front of you, stop
your vehicle behind them.
Passing a vehicle that is stopped at a school crossing
is a very dangerous situation and can result in a citation for the driver who is passing.
