Prince George’s Teen Curfew Extended

The thirty-day curfew enacted in September in Prince George’s County will continue until the end of the year.  County Executive Angela Alsobrooks made the announcement one day before the curfew was to expire.  County officials say during the curfew police made only four arrests. The county initiated the curfew in September as a way to stem the rising tide of youth violence. Under the curfew, teens under the age of 17 are required to stay in their homes between 10:00 p.m. and 5:00 a.m. on Sunday through Thursday. On Fridays and Saturdays, teens would have to be home between midnight and 5:00 a.m.
