Hanover Park Revises Curfew Ordinance
Release date: Thursday, July 9, 2009
The Hanover Park Police Department vigorously enforces the curfew ordinance in an effort to reduce crime. Experience has shown that in many cases, juveniles violating curfew are involved in the commission of other more serious crimes. In other cases, juveniles violating curfew are at greater risk to become a victim of a crime.
Hanover Park Local Ordinance provides that “It shall be unlawful for a minor to be or remain in any public place or on the premises of any establishment within the village during curfew hours.” The Curfew Ordinance was revised on July 2, 2009 to redefine curfew hours.
Curfew Hours in Hanover Park are now defined as 10:00 pm on any Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday until 6:00 am of the following day; and 11:00 pm on any Friday and Saturday until 6:00 am on the following day. Minor for the purposes of the curfew ordinance means any unemancipated person under 17 years of age.
The new curfew hours will be enforced starting on Friday, July 17, 2009 at 11:00 pm.
