DPD, City Officials Would Really Like You to Keep That Firearm Holstered Tomorrow Night
|Delia Jasso, Dwaine Caraway and Lt. Andy Harvey today at DPD HQ|
"No ... gunfire ... on ... New ... Year's ... Eve," said Mayor Pro Tem Dwaine Caraway at today's press conference at DPD HQ, pausing between words to give more authority to his directive. Caraway also wanted the public to understand that guns will be confiscated if the police catch somebody firing a weapon, since it is, ya know, against the law.
"Please do not fire guns," added the far more soft-spoken Delia Jasso. "That is not a way to bring in the New Year."
Last year, Harvey says, DPD officers were dispatched to 615 random gunfire calls between New Year's Eve and New Year's Day.
