As New Year’s Eve approaches, the Los Angeles Police Department and Sheriff’s Department have joined forces to launch its Citywide Gunfire Reduction Campaign. This campaign is designed to help reduce incidents of indiscriminate gunfire that have become a deadly New Year’s tradition in the city and county.

The Gunfire Reduction Campaign aims to advise the community that ringing in the New Year with gunfire will not be tolerated in the City of Los Angeles and in the County of Los Angeles.  Discharging a firearm into the air is punishable by one year in state prison.  Anyone arrested for discharging a firearm will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

For additional information contact LAPD Media Relations Section, at (213) 486-5910 or LASD Public Information Office, Nicole Nishida, at (323) 810-1973.
