Denver increases curfew enforcement April 4-September 28

DENVER - Denver Police will increase enforcement of the city's curfew starting Friday night.

Denver’s curfew ordinance prohibits youth from being in a public place or on public property from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m. Sunday through Thursday and midnight to 5 a.m. Friday and Saturday unless they are accompanied by a parent, a legal guardian or person with written permission from a parent or guardian; if they are in a vehicle being used in interstate travel; if they are working or traveling to or from work; or if they are participating in activities sponsored by a school, religious organization or city organization.

Juveniles found breaking the curfew ordinance during the increased enforcement period from April 4 to September 28 are taken to the Denver Juvenile Services Center at 303 W. Colfax Ave.

"Their parents are then contacted and a citation is issued," Denver Police said in a news release.
