Police Department

Fourth of July

The Fourth of July holiday season is reason to celebrate with family and friends but it also brings the unwanted clamor of illegal fireworks being set off in the Village. 

This time of year, the Campton Hills Police Department gets inundated with calls to respond to residents setting off fireworks. Not only is it illegal, but it disrupts the peace and quiet our residents expect, stresses livestock, and can lead to injuries.  

Per 425 ILCS 35, Unlawful Possession, Sale and Use of Fireworks is a class A misdemeanor for any person to knowingly possess, use, or explode any display fireworks, flame effects, or consumer fireworks. Illinois Fireworks Use Act bans all “consumer fireworks”, which includes firecrackers, bottle rockets and roman candles.  In addition, possession of illegal fireworks is prohibited by Village Code, which carries with it a $75.00 ordinance violation.

So this Fourth of July holiday season, please be thoughtful to your neighbors and leave it to the professionals to entertain you with holiday fireworks.
