As we bid farewell to 2012 this evening, the Chandler Police Department would like to offer a few tips for an enjoyable celebration:
While purchasing and selling fireworks in the city of Chandler is legal, setting them off inside the city limits is not. Those found responsible for setting off fireworks will be subject to a civil citation. Discharging a firearm within city limits is also illegal and extremely dangerous. Anyone found doing so will face arrest and criminal charges.
If your new year’s celebration involves traveling on the roadway, please remember to wear your seatbelt. Designate a driver if alcohol consumption is a part of your holiday celebration.
Have a safe and Happy New Year!
