The Manchester Police Department would like to remind parents (and children alike) that it is important to know and obey the city ordinance regarding curfew. While the child who violates the ordinance is accountable for their actions, parents of minor children are ultimately responsible for the safety and welfare of their children. Curfew violation can be punishable by a fine. The Manchester City Police work to ensure the safety of children and everyone. You can help the police by speaking to your children about curfew and encouraging compliance.
