The popular and effective Oxnard Police Department Mounted Unit will be deployed Saturday, July 3rd and Sunday, July 4th as part of the Agency’s fireworks suppression strategy.

 

Officers Larry Eklund, his partner “Clinton,” and Officer Jim Evans and his partner “JJ,” will be deployed on Oxnard beaches Saturday, July 3rd alerting the public that Oxnard continues it zero tolerance approach to fireworks especially over the 4th of July weekend. These officers and their partners have similarly been deployed each of the last two years in an effort to gain public compliance. July 4th fireworks-related disturbance calls have been significantly reduced in Oxnard from 410 in 2007 to 216 in 2008 and 175 in 2009.

 

The Mounted Unit will expand its mission Sunday, July 4th, focusing on fireworks suppression in, and around the Oxnard Shores and the Channel Islands Harbor. Much of their deployment will be during nighttime hours.

 

Clinton and JJ have been asked to, and will participate in Channel Islands Harbor Children’s Parade. This marks the first time this “working unit” has participated in a parade.

 

Residents and visiting beachgoers are reminded that possession and use of fireworks is prohibited in Oxnard with violators facing fines as much as $1,000.
