Florissant Police: "Zero Tolerance" For Residents' Fireworks
Police will be increasing patrols for those who might be using fireworks in the area.
While the City of Florissant will go on with their fireworks show, the City of Florissant and the Florissant Police Department want to remind residents that they shouldn’t light their own.
Florissant Police Department spokesman Andy Haarman said that the department will have a “zero tolerance” policy for anyone seen or caught lighting fireworks in the city. He also said that fines for such a crime could be as high as $1,000.
The department will also have extra officers on patrol throughout neighborhoods to monitor for residents’ fireworks activities.
