curfewFor safety reasons, Miami Police are now enforcing a curfew for children under the age of 17.

Curfew hours are 11 p.m. to 6 a.m. Sunday to Thursday and midnight to 6 a.m. on Friday and Saturday.

Police say exemptions include if a child is with a parent or legal guardian or someone over 21 years old who has permission to be responsible for the child; and if the juvenile is working or traveling to or from work, traveling interstate, or has written permission to run an errand from a parent or guardian.

Kids found not in compliance with the ordinance will be escorted home or to the nearest police station or holding facility and their parents will be contacted.
