Police Warn of Zero Tolerance for Fireworks Violations
Police also will strictly enforce DWI, pedestrian crosswalk, alcohol and parking regulations during the holiday week.
The Ocean City Police Department has issued a reminder that New Jersey prohibits possession and use of fireworks, and the department warns that officers will enforce a zero tolerance policy on fireworks.
"The Police Department will be in full operation over the Fourth of July weekend, recalling all off-duty personnel," Capt. Steven Ang said in a news release.
Officers will be paying special attention to enforcement of driving while intoxicated offenders, pedestrian safety, illegal alcohol consumption and parking regulations throughout the city, according to Ang.
"Officers will be patrolling the known problem areas on foot and by vehicle to enforce these regulations," Ang said. "We want everyone to have a safe and enjoyable holiday weekend by obeying the laws of the state. By violating the above laws, you not only risk your own safety but that of innocent people that are here to enjoy all that Ocean City has to offer. This will be your only warning given by the police."
