DENVER — The nightlife of anyone under 17 will be under the microscope of Denver’s Curfew Ordinance beginning this weekend.
From April to September, Denver police officers team up with the Denver SafeNite Program monitoring public places to ensure youth 17 years of age and younger are accompanied by an adult guardian or parent between 11 p.m. to 5 a.m., Sunday through Thursday, and 12 a.m. to 5 a.m. Friday and Saturday.
Denver police say teens who are seen without an adult during active curfew enforcement hours will be transported to the Curfew Center where their parents will be contacted and a citation will be issued.
The curfew ordinance is in effect year-round, but enforcement is stepped up during the summer months.
