(Oxnard, CA) In anticipation of the July 4, 2012 holiday, Oxnard police officers will enforce the ban on
fireworks in Oxnard. Anyone possessing, storing, selling, using, transporting or handling any type of
fireworks is subject to criminal arrest or may be issued a civil citation with a fine of up to $1,000.
This year Oxnard PD has two ways to report fireworks in advance of the holiday. You may call the
fireworks hotline at (805) 982-7141 or send an email to email@example.com.
Please include the exact address where the fireworks are being used. If you have the name of the
resident who is using fireworks, you may provide that information as well. It is not necessary for you to
leave your name and phone number if you do not wish to do so.
In response to your tip, Oxnard PD will issue warnings to residents by mail, in person or by phone in an
effort to prevent illegal fireworks activity in the days leading up to and including the Independence Day
On July 4, residents are encouraged to report fireworks activity by calling the Oxnard PD
Communications Center at (805) 385-7740. Please be prepared to tell the dispatcher as much
information about the fireworks activity as possible including the location or the general area where the
fireworks are coming from.
