Breaking Curfew Laws Could be Costly


Police are reminding children that curfew laws are in effect.

In Knox, children who 15, 16, and 17 years of age will be issued a curfew citation if they are in a public place between midnight and 6 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday; after 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and before 6 a.m. Monday through Friday.

If any child under the age of 15 is in public between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. on any day will be cited.

There will not be a curfew violation if the child is with a parent or guardian or with an adult that has permission to have the child out past curfew.

If the child is going to or returning from lawful employment, a school sanctioned activity or a religious event, a citation will not be issued.

Children can be taken into custody and penalties could be issued.
