This past Wednesday, Dallas city council voted to reinstate the city's teen curfew that expired in January, and an amended version begins today.

According to the updated Dallas child/teen curfew:

  • persons below age 16 and younger cannot be in a public place or on the premises of any establishment between 11 p.m. and 6 a.m. Sunday through Thursday and between 12:01am and 6 a.m. Saturday and Sunday.
  • persons below age 16 cannot be out from 9 a.m. - 2:30 p.m. on school days (there is an exception if with a parent)
  • teens found out past the curfew will be taken home to their parents
  • police will issue citations only as a last resort
  • if a citation is issued, it will be handled as a civil violation
  • fines will be $50 each

Dallas City council has set aside $500,000 for new youth activities.
