KA-boom! What to do about illegal fireworks this Fourth of July

From Ingleside Police Station:

Operation Kaboom 2019 Phase 1 (June 4th – July 3rd)

Frustrated by the relentless scourge of illegal July 4th Fireworks every year?

If so, Ingleside Station needs your help. Please:

1) Contact us about problem locations where illegal fireworks have been ignited in the past, and

2) If you see something; say something. We need specific locations with either the addresses or intersections where the big, house shaking, fire hazard creating, injury-causing fireworks were detonated in years past.

During the month leading up to the 4th, we will be compiling a list of these locations in anticipation of 4th of July illegal fireworks activity so that we can stop the big, dangerous gatherings from even starting.
