Patrols out to defuse any illegal fireworks

If it goes up or blows up in the city of Auburn, it’s illegal.

That basic rule has not changed since it was written into the city code nearly 10 years ago.

Still, a wee reminder from Auburn Police about fireworks in the city of Auburn cannot hurt.

This year police have increased enforcement of possession and or discharge of illegal fireworks – fireworks that are not safe and sane – and of children using fireworks without supervision.

On June 26, police began a 5 p.m. through 11 p.m. city-wide emphasis that remains in effect until July 4.

From 2 p.m. on July 4 to 2 a.m. July 5, APD will have up to 16 officers in eight vehicles throughout Auburn, all directed to respond to fireworks-related calls for service and seek out the discharging of illegal fireworks in neighborhoods throughout the city.

In addition, the APD will have seven police units in the area of the Muckleshoot fireworks stands in the 2000 block of Auburn Way South to monitor discharging in that area as well.

Police will issue offenders criminal citations and take those illegal fireworks, too.
