The purpose of this ordinance is to protect the youth of our community, reduce juvenile crime and reinforce parental authority. Many citizens are unaware that Concord has a curfew law. In 1995, the Concord City Council revised the Youth Protection Curfew, and this outlines those changes.
One significant change in the curfew ordinance will hold parents accountable for their children's actions. A state law enacted in 1994 allows cities to recoup the law enforcement costs associated with the detention and transportation of juveniles who violate curfew laws.
