Arlington city councilman Robert Rivera is pushing for a curfew for juveniles.

The proposal is similar to current juvenile curfew laws in Dallas and Fort Worth where students have to be home by 11 p.m. on weekdays and by midnight on weekends.

The idea follows a report that 70 percent of crime in Arlington are committed by gang members and that 20 percent of gang members are juveniles.

Rivera is asking citizens to call in or email cith hall to show support for the curfew so that city hall can move forward with the proposition.
