LPPD is going to be on the hunt for illegal fireworks this Fourth of July.

On the Fourth of July, many animals become so frightened by the noise and commotion of fireworks that they run from otherwise familiar environments and people, and sadly become lost. They may also suffer devastating or even fatal health effects from the stress. The sudden bright flashes and sounds can cause wild animals to run into roadways, resulting in more car accidents than normal.

Remember, fireworks are illegal in the City of La Porte. It is illegal to possess, transport, ignite, or sell fireworks in the City of La Porte. The La Porte Police Department asks for the entire community’s help in making sure everyone can celebrate the Fourth of July safely. For more information regarding holiday safety, please contact the LPPD at 281-471-2141 and follow us on Facebook at @LaPortePoliceDepartment.
