Weapons Ordinance

Don't Fake It Guns are Serious Business logo


Want to learn more about our new Weapons Ordinance? You've come to the right place. 

The ordinance, which takes effect April 1, 2020, is designed to prevent the fear, confusion and unsafe situations that pneumatic and imitation weapons can create. It teaches young people about how dangerous it is to brandish fake guns in public. It also elevates our commitment to community and police working together for a safe community and promotes mutual respect between youth and police.
