Lubbock’s first police system to report the use of fireworks within city limits


The Lubbock Police Department is launching a new online reporting option for fireworks within the Lubbock city limits in hopes of making it more convenient for citizens to report fireworks usage.

Fireworks are illegal within Lubbock city limits, with the Lubbock Ordinance Code stating that anyone violating the ordinance can be fined up to $1,000 for each violation.

Selecting “Crime Report File” will take the user to a separate page, allowing them to select the “fireworks” incident type.

The report, which can be made anonymously or with information about the reporting party, will populate the information to be dispatched, which in turn will pass the information to agents.

While the LPD encourages the use of this online reporting system, members of the public are still encouraged to call the Lubbock Police Department’s non-emergency number at (806) 775-2865 to alert officers to any use of fireworks.
