Phoenix enforcing curfew laws, parents could be charged

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX (AP) -- Phoenix schools are out for the summer and that means young children need to be off the street by 10 p.m. The Phoenix Police Department says that goes for children 15 and younger.

The city curfew for 16- and 17-year-olds is midnight every day.

It's the parents or legal guardian's responsibility to know where children are. Parents can be hit with a misdemeanor and so can children who violate curfew laws.

Curfew does not apply if a child is accompanied by a parent, guardian or other person having care and supervision.
