Arizona Curfew Laws
Statewide Curfew Laws
City Curfew Laws
Although no statewide curfew existsin Arizona at this time, the board of supervisors may place a curfew (applicable only to minors) on an unincorporated area, and may place one on a portion of the county if most of the homeowners want one, or most of the residents in the area want one. Curfew laws must allow exemptions if the minor is with a guardian or adult having custody, is on an emergency errand, or is going on a reasonable errand for a guardian or adult having custody. [more]
Please be advised that though there was no statewide law declaring a juvenile curfew, your county, township or city may have an ordinance (local law) specifying a curfew law. You are advised to contact your city, township, local juvenile department or local police department to see if there are curfew laws in your particular region in your state.
11-251. Powers of board
The board of supervisors, under such limitations and restrictions as are prescribed by law, may:
40. Enact ordinances under its police authority prescribing reasonable curfews in the entire unincorporated area or any area less than the entire unincorporated area of the county for minors and fines not to exceed the fine for a petty offense for violation of such ordinances. Nothing in this paragraph shall be construed to require a request from an association or a majority of the residents of an area before the board may enact an ordinance applicable to the entire or any portion of the unincorporated area. An ordinance enacted pursuant to this paragraph shall provide that a minor is not violating a curfew if the minor is accompanied by a parent, a guardian or an adult having supervisorial custody, is on an emergency errand or has been specifically directed to the location on reasonable, legitimate business or some other activity by the parent, guardian or adult having supervisorial custody. If no curfew ordinance is applicable to a particular unincorporated area of the county, the board may adopt a curfew ordinance on the request or petition of either:
(a) A homeowners' association that represents a majority of the homeowners in the area covered by the association and to which the curfew would apply.
(b) A majority of the residents of the area to which the curfew would apply.
The Phoenix Juvenile Curfew Program
The juvenile curfew program is a cooperative effort between the Phoenix Police, Human Services, and Parks, Recreation and Library departments. The Police Department processes curfew violators while recreation staff provides recreation programs and assists police officers when necessary. Juvenile curfew violators receive information on recreation opportunities and social service agencies. Parents/guardians are contacted and asked to pick up the youth. Instead of being charged with a curfew violation, first time offenders can take a four-hour communication class for a fee.
Youths 15 years and younger: 10 p.m. to 5 a.m.
Youths 16 and 17 years of age: midnight to 5 a.m.
