Fourth of July Holiday Weekend / Extra Patrol

The Fillmore Police Department encourages our residents and visitors to rejoice and celebrate over the Fourth of July weekend responsibly and with consideration for the safety of all members
of the public and their respective property. With the anticipated increase of the city’s population during the festivities, in addition to the inherent dangers associated with illegal fireworks, the
Police Department will have extra patrol deputies deployed throughout the city over the holiday weekend.

The Police Department wants to remind residents and visitors about illegal fireworks and the fines associated with these crimes:

– “Safe and Sane” fireworks, bearing the seal of the State Fire Marshal, can be legally sold, possessed, and enjoyed in the city between 12:00 pm, June 28th, and 12:00 pm, July 5th
.
– Violators may be cited for violating city municipal codes and are subject to a $1000.00 fine for possessing illegal fireworks or violators may be arrested for more serious offenses. If you
witness any illegal firework activity, please call the Fillmore Police Department at (805) 524- 2233 or if there is an immediate threat to life or property call 9-1-1.
