California Curfew Laws

Statewide Curfew Laws
 
City Curfew Laws

No statewide California curfew law was found which specifies a curfew for juveniles. However, a minor, who has habitually refused to obey any curfew ordinance of a city or any reasonably rules, will be under the care of the court.

California Code: Section 601

Any person under the age of 18 years who persistently or habitually refuses to obey the reasonable and proper orders or directions of his or her parents, guardian, or custodian, or who is beyond the control of that person, or who is under the age of 18 years when he or she violated any ordinance of any city or county of this state establishing a curfew based solely on age is within the jurisdiction of the juvenile court which may adjudge the minor to be a ward of the court.

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.

Protecting the Youths of San Francisco

Curfew laws restrict the rights of juveniles to be outdoors or in public places during certain hours of the day. Such laws aim to establish a safer community and to better protect kids from becoming victims of crime or becoming involved in delinquent behaviors. The San Francisco Municipal Police Code (SF MPC) 539 states:

It shall be unlawful for any minor ( under 14 years) to be in or on any public street, public park, or any other public place between the hours of 12:00 midnight and 5:00 a.m., except for the following:

If a minor is found to be in violation of MPC 539, the minor will be taken into custody and cited for the offense. The minor will then be released to the care of the parent or guardian. If the parent or guardian cannot be located, the minor will be transferred to a juvenile receiving facility.
