VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) - Starting this spring break, Virginia Beach police will ticket teens out past the 11 p.m. curfew, without supervision.
According to officers, crews will also be enforcing the city's 11 p.m. curfew for those under the age of 18. Anyone under that age caught outside after 11 p.m. will be held at the city's second precinct until a parent or guardian picks them up.
"We told all the businesses and all the local residents that we're going to do this curfew initiative, do everything we can to keep peace and order down there and make it a friendly environment that people can go and enjoy themselves," Sgt. Adam Bernstein with the Virginia Beach Police Department said.
Police say teens will be cited and required to face a judge for curfew violation.
