Ask HPD: Curfew Law

Question: What is the curfew law for children?

Answer: It is against the law for children under the age of 16 to be out in public and private areas after 10 at night and before 4 in the morning without being accompanied by a parent, guardian, or authorized adult. Violators can be arrested and sent to Family Court. A parent or guardian who allows this to occur can face a fine of up to $100 and up to 20 days in prison.
