The Los Angeles County Sheriff Department’s mission is to ensure the safety of all residents, business owners and visitors to the City of Lynwood. Additional personnel will be deployed during the days and nights immediately preceding and on the 4th of July. Police officers have been directed to issue citations in the amount of $1000 for anyone:
– Using illegal fireworks
– In possession of illegal fireworks
– Selling illegal fireworks
There will be an issuance of citations for each violation so fines can add up to $3000 or more. Don’t take the risk!
The City of Lynwood has made it very well known about our firework laws through various media outlets and advertising venues.
