ROBERT "BOBBY G" GRONAUER
Las Vegas Township Constable
After nearly three decades in police work, Robert A. Gronauer, better known by his friends as "Bobby G", stepped down from his supervisory position at the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department in January 1999, to take on his new position as the Las Vegas Township Constable.
The International Association of Chiefs of Police chose Gronauer as one of the top police officers in America for using innovative and progress techniques to solve problems in one of the most crime ridden areas of Las Vegas, "Gerson Park", one of those places where they said it couldn't be done. Dedication to his country and community brought "Bobby G" a Purple Heart and a Bronze Star with a V for Valor in Vietnam, and the Marine Corps looked to Robert Gronauer to teach its young officers to be leaders. "Bobby G" has been presented with the following awards: "Humanitarian Award" - presented in March 2002 by the Seniors' United Organization, "Elected Official of the Year" - presented in April 2001 by the Asian Chamber of Commerce, "Constable of the Year 2001" - presented on April 7, 2002, by the National Constables' Association, the "Citizen of the Month Award-June 2002" - presented on June 5, 2002, by the Las Vegas City Council and "Proclamation Award" - presented on July 16, 2002, by the Clark County Board of Commissioners for serving his country and the Clark County community with dedication and pride.
Some of Bobby's objectives are to help preserve and clearly define the significant role of the constable in the delivery of justice system in the United States, train, educate and upgrade the quality of performance of the constable, provide membership benefits which will contribute to the general welfare and quality of the constables, continue to carry court orders from the court offices and be available to assist the needs of the office of the county sheriff and local police departments.
