What is the Chino Police Department (PD) doing?

Beginning the week prior to the 4th of July holiday, the Police Department dedicates specific enforcement cars that respond to fireworks complaint calls and actively look for those violating the Chino municipal code prohibitions against the use of illegal fireworks. The Police Department also robustly staffs on the actual 4th of July holiday to more effectively respond to the increased call volume due to fireworks. On average, we deploy more than 50 personnel on July 4th. In addition to increased enforcement efforts by our patrol staff, the Special Enforcement Team conducts numerous undercover operations beginning in early June to seize illegal fireworks from those attempting to sell them in our area.
