The Fourth of July holiday is almost here, which means an increase in police calls about the use of illegal fireworks. The only fireworks that are allowed are those sold at licensed retailers in Minnesota. In other words, fireworks sold in Wisconsin are most likely illegal in Minnesota.
Officers receive many calls about people using illegal fireworks. This call takes away from true emergencies and calls for service. In addition, pets and some former military members can be sensitive to the loud noise produced by some illegal fireworks. Be a good neighbor by refraining from illegal firework use.
