The Cheyenne Police Department will be making a special effort to catch drunk drivers and people violating the city's fireworks ordinance over the next few days, according to Officer Dan Long.

He says the department's DUI enforcement effort will include extra officers on the streets looking for intoxicated drivers not only on July 4th, but through the holiday weekend. Long says the department's other emphasis over the next few days will be to catch people illegally using fireworks in the city.

Most fireworks other than sparklers are illegal within the city limits of Cheyenne, under the penalty of a $200 fine.

Long says one officer will be dedicated only to fireworks violations, and says the department in general will be aggressively enforcing the fireworks ordinance
