Briefly

Illegal Fireworks Reports Increase

Officers with the Jamestown Police Department reported 61 complaints of illegal fireworks between July 3 to July 7 this Independence Day holiday, an increase from roughly the same time last year. In 2018, the department received 53 complaints for fireworks, and in 2017, 57 complaints were reported. In Chautauqua County, only sparkler-type devices are allowed. The County Legislature in 2016 permitted use of sparklers in hopes it would limit the number of people using illegal fireworks.
