Police arrest curfew missers

4 parents get citations

        HAMILTON — Police arrested 27 juveniles and cited four parents during the department's latest curfew sweep this past weekend.

        The arrests were made between 11:30 p.m. Friday and 3 a.m. Saturday.

        Among those arrested were two juveniles with warrants for their arrest and eight offenders who had been arrested previously for curfew violations. Most of the juveniles, however, were released to their parents.

        Police cited four parents after learning that “their children had numerous repeat violations for curfew and other (offenses),” a news release said. The parents will appear in juvenile court for failure to take responsibility for their children, said Sgt. Jim Malone, who heads the department's juvenile investigations section.

        “We will continue to conduct these sweeps to curtail juvenile crime and hold parents accountable for their children's actions,” he said.

        The city's curfew ordinance prohibits minors from being away from their homes between 11:30 p.m. and 6 a.m. on weekends. Prohibited hours during the week are 10 p.m. to 6 a.m.

        The exceptions: When the parent is aware of the juvenile's location, or when the juvenile is coming home from work, a special event or emergency errand.

        The police department has periodically conducted these curfew sweeps in an attempt to cut down on the number of juveniles at large — and possibly getting into trouble — during restricted hours.
