4th of July with American Flag.jpg

The Leavenworth County Sheriff's Office wishes you and your family a safe and exciting Fourth of July holiday! The Fourth of July, known as Independence Day, celebrates our independence as a nation on July 4, 1776. 

As you celebrate with friends and family, we would like to remind you to be safe and take precautions to ensure the safety of our community.

We caution anyone traveling during the holiday to always wear your seat belt and never drive under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Instead, plan for a designated driver to get you home safely. Not only do you risk your life when you drive impaired, but you also put the other drivers and passengers you share the roadway with at risk as well.

Additionally, it is important to remember that fireworks can pose a fire and safety hazard to those who use them.

Before shooting fireworks, please review the following safety tips from The Kansas State Fire Marshal

Hoping you and your family have a great Fourth of July holiday!
