Police put out plenty of reminders that setting off fireworks inside the city limits is illegal.

Still, some folks simply ignore that ordinance.

How difficult is it to enforce that rule?

The Corpus Christi Police Department was on patrol last night for people violating the city ban on fireworks.

Today, we’ll meet with CCPD to find out numbers on how many complaints and citations were given out after lighting fireworks in the city limits.

You'll also here from one frustrated resident who says police didn't respond to his complaints about illegal fireworks.
