Denver Police Say Curfew Will Protect The Safety Of Kids
DENVER (CBS4) – Denver police will be enforcing the city’s curfew program.
The main goal is to keep teens from getting into trouble at night. CBS4 has covered stories about teenagers running wild on the 16th Street Mall, and in some cases attacking people.
Police say they also worry about the teens themselves becoming targets of crime.
“We’re seeing them at parties with a lot of older people, catching rides with adults, and walking with strangers,” Megan Dodge with Denver police said.
Under the city’s curfew rules anyone 17 or under is not allowed on public property from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m. Sunday through Thursday and midnight to 5 a.m. Friday and Saturday.
