Now that school is out, more young people are spending time outside later in the evening.
Henryetta police chief Steve Norman is reminding everyone there is a curfew law and officers will be enforcing it.
“Any young person or teenager must be home from midnight to 5 a.m.,” he said. “The only exception is if they are accompanied by a parent or guardian or are going home after work.”
The chief said officers will have zero tolerance for offenders and they will receive a ticket.
That no tolerance policy is in effect partly to cut down on automobile burglaries that have been plaguing Henryetta and other area towns.
“People need to make sure their cars are locked up at night and personal property removed from them,” Norman said. “These are crimes of opportunity and vehicles that are locked are less likely to be hit. Thieves don’t want to make noise breaking a window.”
