OAKLEY PD CONFISCATES HUNDREDS OF FIREWORKS AND ISSUES 68 CITATIONS

Throughout June and through the 4th of July, the City of Oakley Police Department experienced a significant increase in the number of fireworks-related calls for service. In June of 2019, the Police Department received just 15 calls from residents regarding fireworks complaints. During this same time period this year (2020) we received nearly 300 complaints. This same type of an increase has been seen in many of our neighboring communities. The evening of the 4th of July hundreds of additional calls for service came in and fireworks were rampant throughout the community.

“We had police officers, other PD staff and CERT volunteers – a total of 18 people and two drones out helping us on July 4th. We also appreciate those residents that were able to provide us exact addresses where the fireworks were coming from. While we clearly weren’t able to stop most of the fireworks, the confiscations and citations send a very strong message,” explained Interim Police Chief Paul Beard.

In addition to what Oakley authorities handled, the East Contra Costa Fire Protection District reported 114 calls for service on the holiday, including 29 calls for fires, two burn injuries to a child and father, $20,000 in estimated property loss, 125 acres consumed by fire, a total of 70 citations issued, and a total of 100 pounds of fireworks seized

“We appreciate that everyone wants to celebrate the Independence Day holiday, but these are the realities of the damaging effects those illegal fireworks have on our communities.” Fire Marshall Steve Aubert stated.

REMEMBER! All fireworks are illegal in Contra Costa County.
