How late can you shoot fireworks?

As we approach the Fourth of July holiday, please be sure that the residents and visitors in your communities are complying with the law regarding discharging of fireworks. Last night, officers were dispatched to an apartment community where fireworks were being set off well into 3:00 in the morning. Officers were able to locate the individuals and subsequently arrested them on drug charges.

Please remind the residents in your communities that fireworks can be set off on normal days until 9 p.m. and no later than midnight on the Fourth of July.
