During these summer months Peoria Police are reminding people about curfew.

For those 12 and under, you must be off the streets from 9 pm to 6 am.

For those 13-to-16, Sunday through Thursday curfew is 11 pm until  6 am. and from Friday to Saturday, they can stay out until midnight. 

Peoria Police say there are consequences for breaking curfew.

“As parents, we love summertime because the schedules relax a little bit and everything’s not so much by the numbers,” says PIO Amy Dotson, Peoria Police. “Get the homework done and bedtime and things like that. It’s a little more relaxed, but ya know, just know where your kids are. The curfew is a great guideline and it’s a great fallback for parents too.”

Officers do exercise leniency in certain situations like coming home from work, but for those caught out passed curfew, you could get hit with a $50 ticket.
