Juvenile Curfew and Parental Responsibility Ordinances

Open Publication PDF

Peggy Slavick, Steve Aos - March 1996

The increase in juvenile violent crime in Washington prompted the 1994 Washington State Legislature to pass a law enabling local jurisdictions to adopt juvenile curfews. Cities and counties are allowed to establish “times and conditions under which juveniles may be present on the public streets, in the public parks, or in any other public place during specified hours” (RCW 35.21.635 and 36.21.425). The Institute was directed by the Legislature to study juvenile violence and other at-risk behaviors of youth. As part of the Institute’s research efforts concerning juvenile violence and prevention, a survey was conducted of the cities in Washington with juvenile curfew ordinances. This report reviews the ordinances and surveys city officials regarding their experiences.
