I just received this message from Sgt. Trevor Shelor of Crime Prevention Unit of Charleston Police a couple of hours ago. For those new to the neighborhood, he was the police officer who gave a couple of lectures on crime prevention at Whitney Lake a few years ago and he always sent us tips on crime prevention.
REMEMBER, EXCEPT FOR PERMITTED EVENTS, FIREWORKS ARE PROHIBITED IN THE CITY OF CHARLESTON.
Be kind to your neighbors and obey the law. Many elderly, adults, veterans, children, and pets are very alarmed or stressed by the sound of fireworks, and they pose numerous safety hazards. If you are concerned about fireworks being shot in your neighborhood, call Dispatch at 843-743-7200.
