Curfew for youth set at 7 p.m.

The weeknight curfew has been moved up to 7 p.m. in the City of Hazlehurst. Parents take note: If your child is on the streets of Hazlehurst after curfew, YOU will be charged.

The city curfew will be strictly enforced, warns Hazlehurst Police Chief Byron Swilley. The new curfew is 7 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday for everyone under 18 years old.

“If a juvenile is out after curfew, parents will be charged,” said Chief Swilley.

Consideration will be given to those who have jobs that require them to be out after curfew, but Chief Swilley warns that unsupervised kids will be violating curfew if they are just hanging around town with their friends.

Juveniles should also be aware that if they are wandering around town with a book bag, the book bag will be subject to search, according to Chief Swilley.
