2014 Holiday Safety

Please help the Dallas Police Department minimize the property damage and injuries caused by fireworks. Fireworks are meant to be enjoyed; therefore, let the professionals entertain you.

Possession of fireworks within the city limits is against the law. Fireworks found in plain view will be confiscated and anyone found in possession of them can be cited. You can pay up to $2000 in fines if caught.

Another tradition that is not only dangerous, but is also illegal is the discharge of a firearm within the city limits. A person can be cited up to $4000 and/or face up to a year in jail.

The Dallas Police Department will be on the lookout for any violators. You can also help by reporting any of these illegal activities to 911. We would like you and your community to stay safe during the upcoming 4th of July holiday.
