For the Fourth of July, the Jefferson City Police Department will significantly increase staffing levels throughout the community and in those areas that center around Salute to America festivities.
In particular, additional officers will patrol downtown and in the North Jefferson City North area.
For the Thursday night firework display, officers said citizens may park along Mokane Road and Hibernia Road in North Jefferson City, but they will be limited to parking on one side of the road.
Citizens are also reminded that discharging of fireworks within the city limits is prohibited and that no fireworks of any kind are permitted on the Jefferson City Memorial Airport property.
The department will also be joining other Missouri law enforcement agencies in an effort to crack down on drunk driving through Sunday.
