Community: LASD Altadena "Operation Don't Shoot - 2014" for celebrating New Years
Celebrating the New Year with gunfire will not be tolerated in the Community of Altadena.
Every year, a significant number of people throughout the County of Los Angeles engage in the extremely dangerous practice of discharging firearms into the air to celebrate the arrival of the New Year.
In an effort to educate and warn the public of the problem, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department (LASD) and the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) have embarked upon an awareness campaign. This campaign is designed to help reduce incidents of indiscriminate gunfire that, while on the decline, has continued to be a deadly tradition in our Communities.
The Gunfire Reduction Campaign aims to advise the community that celebrating the New Year with gunfire will not be tolerated in the Community of Altadena or anywhere the County of Los Angeles. California Penal Code Section 246.3 prohibits negligent discharging of firearms. Any person who violates Section 246.3 will have their firearm confiscated and will be arrested for a felony crime.
We ask for you to celebrate the Holiday’s safely and please don’t fire your gun into the air this New Year’s!
On behalf of the Altadena Sheriff Station, we wish you and your family a safe and Happy New year!
