Indianapolis - With summer around the corner and schools preparing for their break, IMPD will be stepping up curfew enforcement. IMPD will be working in conjunction with the Marion County Probation Department in conducting curfew sweeps city-wide and targeting potential trouble spots with a propensity towards juvenile crime. The primary objective is to decrease the likelihood of juveniles becoming involved in crimes as a victim or a perpetrator.

Parents and guardians are reminded that they are responsible for their children during the hours of curfew. It is unlawful for a child 15, 16, or 17 to be in a public place between 1:00AM and 5:00AM on Saturday or Sunday and between 11:00PM and 5:00AM Sunday through Thursday. Children under the age of 15 are prohibited to be in a public place on day between 11:00pm and 5:00AM.

The exceptions are:

1) Accompanied by the child's parent, guardian, or custodian;
(2) Accompanied by an adult specified by the child's parent, guardian, or custodian;
(3) With the consent of the child's parent, guardian, or custodian, either participating in, going to, or returning from:
a. Lawful employment;
b. A school-sanctioned activity;
c. A religious event;
d. An emergency involving the protection of a person or property from an imminent threat of serious bodily injury or substantial damage;
e. An expressive, religious, or associational activity protected by either federal or state law, including but not limited to the free exercise of religion, freedom of speech, and the right of assembly;
f. An activity conducted by a non-profit or governmental entity that provides recreation, education, training, or other care under the supervision of one (1) or more adults; or
g. An activity undertaken at the written direction of the child's parent, guardian, or custodian;
or,
(4) Engaged in interstate or international travel from a location outside Indiana to another location outside Indiana.
