Wisconsin Curfew Laws

 

Statewide Curfew Laws
 
City Curfew Laws
No statewide Wisconsin curfew law was found which specifies a curfew for juveniles. Two references were located which address curfew but they focus on the right to order a curfew for a youth who is a "habitual truant" (118.163) or to give a curfew to a youth who is on probation (938.342).

 

Please be advised that though no statewide curfew was found each city or county in Wisconsin may establish a curfew ordinance. Also be advised of the disclaimer at the end of this page - simply stated, do not depend on the information on this site to be current or accurate. Laws change and you should always check with your state, county or city to be sure you obtain current information about their curfew laws.

B. City of Milwaukee v. KF 426 N.W. 2d 329 (Wis. 1988) [Link]
A. Under the Milwaukie City Ordinance, curfew times are based on age:

 

This case concerned the constitutionality of the Milwaukee curfew ordinance, which the Supreme Court of Wisconsin found to be constitutional. The case arose from citations issued by the MPD to approximately 95 youth who were at a dance at the War Memorial Center sponsored by the University of Wisconsin Black Student Union. The purpose of the dance was the promotion of higher education and was overseen by several adults, security personnel, and police officers. The MPD, who were at the War Memorial Center because they had received complaints of vehicle thefts in the area, requested that the individuals in charge of the dance advise the attendees of the curfew ordinance and request that youth under 17 leave the premises by 11:00 PM. The Officers returned to the dance shortly after 11:00 PM and were advised of vandalization to the vending machines and discovered graffiti associated with certain gangs. The police officers then entered the dance and observed approximately 70 people under 17. The dance was stopped and those who appeared to be under 17 were stopped and questioned. Those who were under 17 were arrested and taken to the police administration building. The juveniles whose parents arrived to pick them up were permitted to leave without citation and there is a dispute if the other juveniles were permitted to call their parents prior to being taken to the police administration building.

K.F. (15 years old) and D.A. (16 years old) were charged with violating the curfew; they pleaded not guilty. They also filed motions to dismiss the charges on the basis that the curfew ordinance was vague and overbroad. The trial court denied their motion and found the ordinance constitutional, and found the two guilty of violating the ordinance. On appeal the Wisconsin Supreme Court held that the interest of the city in protecting youths and curtailing juvenile crime is compelling and that the ordinance restricts the movement of juveniles for only a narrow part of the day in "public" places. The Court found the ordinance to be drawn as narrowly as practicable and because they found that the ordinance met the strict scrutiny standard requiring a "compelling state interest" it was unnecessary to determine whether they would adopt a less stringent "significant state interest" standard as applied in Carey V. Population Services International, 431 U.S. 678, with respect to juveniles.
