Curfew Violators Targeted
Beginning Wednesday, April 11, 2012 and throughout the school Spring Break period, the Newport Beach Police Department will conduct concentrated enforcement against juvenile curfew violators. This is in response to recent increases in theft related crimes committed during nighttime hours by juvenile subjects. The City Curfew Ordinance prohibits any person under the age of eighteen from loitering in public streets, alleys, and other public places between the hours of 10:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. It is the Police Department’s intent to enforce this law as a means to reduce crime while at the same time protecting juveniles from potentially being crime victims themselves.
The Newport Beach Police Department will continue to actively enforce this ordinance for the safety of our youth and to discourage improper behavior.
