WHAT: Sheriff David A. Weaver Enacts County Wide Fireworks Ban
NARRATIVE: On June 28, 2012, Douglas County Sheriff David A. Weaver enacted a county wide ban on fireworks. Due to the extremely dry conditions and fire danger, the ban on fireworks will be strictly enforced by the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, Parker Police, Castle Rock Police, and the Lone Tree Police Departments. Any person found to be using fireworks will be cited and any fireworks will be confiscated. This means if you are contacted by law enforcement setting off any type of fireworks, to include sparklers, smokes bombs, etc., you will be ticketed and subject to fines. Please be assured that we are enacting these bans for the safety and security for all residents residing within both incorporated and unincorporated areas of Douglas County. We appreciate your cooperation during these extreme conditions.
