A NOTE FROM THE OAKLEY POLICE ON FIREWORKS

The Oakley Police Department realizes the negative impacts fireworks has on families with young children, pets and in some cases military veterans. Fireworks of all types are illegal in Contra Costa County. The Oakley Police Department has been taking proactive, and collaborative, measures as we head into the Fourth of July weekend. The Oakley Police Department will have additional staff on duty for the weekend to help ensure the safety of all residents. Please do not be part of the problems that can lead to disturbances of your neighbors peace and unintended fires.

The Oakley Police Department has been working on identifying addresses where fireworks are likely being shot from and officers have been making personal contact at these locations to have educational discussions with the occupants. The Oakley Police Department has also left the occupants with resource information (link: bit.ly/2YVTsIh).

We are asking all Oakley residents to refrain from letting off fireworks and there will be zero tolerance. While it is obviously not possible to catch every instance of violations, we will have extra staff on hand and drones in operation to help deal with this illegal activity. Last year during the Fourth of July period, the Oakley Police Department issued 11 citations and confiscated nearly 100 pieces of fireworks. Know that most fines are $1,000, and for some fireworks offenses, the fine can actually reach $50,000 with jail time.

The Oakley Police Department urges everybody to celebrate in a safe, and legal, manner. We will be here if you need us.

OPD CONFISCATES FIREWORKS
Last night Oakley Police Officers seized approximately 75 large, aerial, multi-projectile fireworks including one very large rocket firework. Citations were also issued.

ALL fireworks are illegal and create a significant fire hazard, disturbances to others, and a huge safety risk to you and your neighbors. If anybody witnesses fireworks activity, they may report the location anonymously to OPD@ci.oakley.ca.us

Congratulations to the winner of our Hometown Holiday Decorating contest- 1044 Morning Glory Way! Way to show off your Independence Day spirit!

We understand that this is a challenging time, with the urge to celebrate the Fourth of July conflicting with the order to socially distance. Although our traditional Cityhood Celebration & fireworks display and the Friday Night Bites food truck event have all been cancelled, we are confident they will come back as we all continue to work together and do all we can to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

In the meantime, please follow the link below to see some really cool videos of fireworks from all over in previous years! Have a happy and safe Fourth of July!

Look out for the Census Caravan this Saturday!

This weekend, there is an exciting and unique opportunity to recognize and promote the 2020 Census -the cities of Oakley and Brentwood are collaborating with the Contra Costa Census Office to bring the Census directly to our neighborhoods with a special Census 2020 Caravan this Saturday, July 4th.

The Caravan will start in the Summer Lake neighborhood of Oakley at 10:00 a.m., visiting parts of Emerson Ranch and the Downtown Oakley area. The City of Brentwood will take over at the corner of Brentwood Boulevard and Sands Creek Way and continue the Caravan through their streets.

Participants of the Census 2020 Caravan include Supervisor Diane Burgis, Oakley’s Vice Mayor Sue Higgins, Council Member Michael Krieg, Oakley Police Department, the Oakley Recreation Department, the Rotary Club of Oakley, the Kiwanis Club of Oakley,and more!

The Caravan is designed as a fun way to bring attention to the 2020 Census, which is vital to our communities. There is much happening in the world today that it may seem like the Census is an afterthought, but the Census is actually incredibly important Census data will help determine how over $675 billion are spent on the state, county and local level.
