Teen curfew has existed for many years but lets be honest how many police officers actually enforce this law. It would be counter productive to stop every single person who looks like they are under the age of 18. Well, Miami PD says that they plan on enforcing this law to help crack down on crime.

Miami police began enforcing a teen curfew Wednesday, although they insisted this was not in response to a recent series of shootings in the city.

According to the Juvenile Curfew Ordinance, it is against the law for children younger than 17 to be out on their own in Miami-Dade County between 11 p.m. and 6 a.m. from Sunday through Thursday. On Friday and Saturday, curfew hours are midnight until 6 a.m.

Miami police spokesman Willie Moreno said police have enforced the curfew several times within the last few years.
