Curfew Patrol Hits Dallas Streets This Weekend



    Nearly three dozen Dallas police officers will hit the street Thursday, Friday and Saturday night specifically looking for teens violating curfew.

    Anyone under the age of 17 is not to be out between the hours of 11 p.m. and 6 a.m. Sunday through Thursday and between midnight and 6 a.m. Friday and Saturday.

    Those found in violation can be cited and given a free ride to the police station where they'll be held until their parents pick them up.

    There are, of course, exceptions to the law, such as teens who may be working a job at those hours.  Though, if stopped, they'll need proof.

    The curfew was instituted to try to cut into crimes committed by and against juveniles.
