SANDY, Utah (ABC 4 UTAH)- Law enforcement want you to go to organized, controlled fireworks displays. But if you plan to hold your own display at home, you could risk paying hundreds of dollars in fines.

Four Sandy Police officers make up the fireworks patrol working from Thursday at 8p until midnight. Their job is to make sure people are enjoying the holiday while having fun safely and legally. The officer's first priority is to prevent wildfires. The second priority is to prevent injury.

"If we can control this discharge of the fireworks in this area we can limit the probablity of starting a wildfire and secondary reducing risk of injury," said Sandy Police Officer Greg Morritt.

If you violate the city's code, it's a Class B Misdemeanor with a $500 fine.
