Gresham Police Target Use of Illegal Fireworks (Photo) - 06/19/18

GRESHAM, Ore.— The use of illegal fireworks is a concern of Gresham residents and the Gresham Police Department. This year, police officers will be focusing on reducing the use of illegal fireworks leading up to and including the Fourth of July. 

Oregon law bans the sale, possession and use of fireworks that fly, explode or travel more than six feet on the ground or 12 inches in the air.

There will be extra patrols to enforce the laws pertaining to the possession and use of illegal fireworks. Individuals found in possession of illegal fireworks will be cited for ORS 480.120 sale, possession and use of fireworks. This is a class B misdemeanor which can result in a $1500 fine. In addition, illegal fireworks will be seized by officers.

Gresham Police want to ensure that all citizens get to enjoy a safe Fourth of July celebration. Illegal fireworks can be reported to the non-emergency police dispatch line at 503.823.3333. Please recognize that emergency police calls will get priority response.
