      Change will protect children from becoming victims of crime; discourage
      loitering

      (Washington, DC) Mayor Anthony A. Williams announced today that on
      Monday, July 31, an alternative curfew for young people 16 and younger
      will go into effect.

      On July 21, the Council passed the Enhanced Crime Prevention and
      Abatement Emergency Amendment Act of 2006 giving the Mayor the authority
      to set alternative curfew hours. In amending the Mayor's legislation,
      the Council set notification requirements that required that at least
      five days notice be given to Advisory Neighborhood Commissions and that
      public notification be made at least five days before the curfew goes
      into effect. Additionally, the Mayor is required to post the
      information on the Website for the city and for the Metropolitan Police
      Department.

      "Too often, young people are becoming involved in violent crimes," said
      Mayor Williams. "This earlier curfew hour is necessary in order to
      protect them from becoming victims of crime or from becoming involved in
      crimes at night. Dozens of cities across the United States have similar
      curfews, ranging from Philadelphia and Denver to Santa Barbara and
      Cleveland. Curfews will keep our children safer, and encourage parents
      to take a stronger interest in the activities of their children and to
      take responsibility for their whereabouts."

      Beginning Monday, July 31, alternative curfew hours for young people 16
      and younger will be set from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. every night of the week.
      These curfew hours will last for 30 consecutive days and expire on
      Wednesday, August 30 at 11:59 p.m. After this date, curfew hours will
      revert to the hours currently in place pursuant to the Juvenile Curfew
      Act (midnight to 6 a.m.) unless a subsequent Mayor's Order is issued to
      extend the 30-day period.

      Mayor Williams' emergency anti-crime legislation centers on authorizing
      MPD Chief Charles Ramsey to deploy officers on a six-day work week. The
      extra manpower means at least 300 more uniformed officers on the
      streets. The plan also provided the Mayor with the authority to modify
      curfew time, and it authorized the expansion of closed circuit
      television cameras to be used in some neighborhoods for both crime
      prevention and investigation.

      "While a curfew is no panacea, it's an important way to help our police
      keep the streets safe," said Mayor Williams.

      Below are some frequently-asked questions and answers:

      Does the curfew law apply to non-District residents?

      Yes. The curfew law applies to all persons 16 and younger who are in the
      District of Columbia during curfew hours. This includes both District
      residents as well as young people who reside elsewhere.

      How will the law be enforced?

      Anyone 16 and younger who violates curfew will be detained by the
      Metropolitan Police Department. In most cases, the juvenile will be
      taken to one of two Curfew Centers operated by the DC government:

      * Choice Academy at Douglass Senior High School
      2600 Douglass Place, SE
      * Shaw Junior High School
      10th and R Streets, NW

      A parent, legal guardian, or other responsible adult will be contacted
      to pick the child up immediately. If not picked up by 6:00 am, the
      juvenile will be handed over to the DC Child and Family Services Agency
      . Juveniles age 12 and
      younger who are picked up on curfew violations will immediately be
      turned over to the CFSA.

      What are the penalties for violating the law?

      A parent or legal guardian of a juvenile 16 and younger commits an
      offense if he or she knowingly permits, or by insufficient control
      allows, the minor to violate the curfew law. Any adult who violates the
      Juvenile Curfew Act is subject to a fine not to exceed $500 or community
      service. A minor who violates curfew may be ordered to perform up to 25
      hours of community service.

      Persons 16 and younger are exempt from curfew if they:

      * Accompany a parent or guardian or any person age 21 or older
      * Complete an errand at the direction of a parent or guardian,
      without detour or stop
      * Ride in a motor vehicle involved in interstate travel
      * Work or return home from a job, without detour or stop
      * Become involved in an emergency
      * Stand on a sidewalk that joins their residence or the residence
      of a next-door neighbor, if the neighbor did not complain to police
      * Attend an official school, religious, or other recreational
      activity sponsored by the District of Columbia, a civic organization, or
      other similar group that takes responsibility for the juvenile (this
      includes traveling to and from the activity)
      * Exercise their First Amendment rights protected by the US
      Constitution , including
      the free exercise of speech, religion, and right of assembly

      What alternative programs are there for young people?

      The District of Columbia has a variety of programs and centers that
      serve young people seeking alternatives to being on the streets,
      including social, educational, recreational, and counseling services.

            Change will protect children from becoming victims of crime; discourage
            loitering

            (Washington, DC) Mayor Anthony A. Williams announced today that on
            Monday, July 31, an alternative curfew for young people 16 and younger
            will go into effect.

            On July 21, the Council passed the Enhanced Crime Prevention and
            Abatement Emergency Amendment Act of 2006 giving the Mayor the authority
            to set alternative curfew hours. In amending the Mayor's legislation,
            the Council set notification requirements that required that at least
            five days notice be given to Advisory Neighborhood Commissions and that
            public notification be made at least five days before the curfew goes
            into effect. Additionally, the Mayor is required to post the
            information on the Website for the city and for the Metropolitan Police
            Department.

            "Too often, young people are becoming involved in violent crimes," said
            Mayor Williams. "This earlier curfew hour is necessary in order to
            protect them from becoming victims of crime or from becoming involved in
            crimes at night. Dozens of cities across the United States have similar
            curfews, ranging from Philadelphia and Denver to Santa Barbara and
            Cleveland. Curfews will keep our children safer, and encourage parents
            to take a stronger interest in the activities of their children and to
            take responsibility for their whereabouts."

            Beginning Monday, July 31, alternative curfew hours for young people 16
            and younger will be set from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. every night of the week.
            These curfew hours will last for 30 consecutive days and expire on
            Wednesday, August 30 at 11:59 p.m. After this date, curfew hours will
            revert to the hours currently in place pursuant to the Juvenile Curfew
            Act (midnight to 6 a.m.) unless a subsequent Mayor's Order is issued to
            extend the 30-day period.

            Mayor Williams' emergency anti-crime legislation centers on authorizing
            MPD Chief Charles Ramsey to deploy officers on a six-day work week. The
            extra manpower means at least 300 more uniformed officers on the
            streets. The plan also provided the Mayor with the authority to modify
            curfew time, and it authorized the expansion of closed circuit
            television cameras to be used in some neighborhoods for both crime
            prevention and investigation.

            "While a curfew is no panacea, it's an important way to help our police
            keep the streets safe," said Mayor Williams.

            Below are some frequently-asked questions and answers:

            Does the curfew law apply to non-District residents?

            Yes. The curfew law applies to all persons 16 and younger who are in the
            District of Columbia during curfew hours. This includes both District
            residents as well as young people who reside elsewhere.

            How will the law be enforced?

            Anyone 16 and younger who violates curfew will be detained by the
            Metropolitan Police Department. In most cases, the juvenile will be
            taken to one of two Curfew Centers operated by the DC government:

            * Choice Academy at Douglass Senior High School
            2600 Douglass Place, SE
            * Shaw Junior High School
            10th and R Streets, NW

            A parent, legal guardian, or other responsible adult will be contacted
            to pick the child up immediately. If not picked up by 6:00 am, the
            juvenile will be handed over to the DC Child and Family Services Agency
            . Juveniles age 12 and
            younger who are picked up on curfew violations will immediately be
            turned over to the CFSA.

            What are the penalties for violating the law?

            A parent or legal guardian of a juvenile 16 and younger commits an
            offense if he or she knowingly permits, or by insufficient control
            allows, the minor to violate the curfew law. Any adult who violates the
            Juvenile Curfew Act is subject to a fine not to exceed $500 or community
            service. A minor who violates curfew may be ordered to perform up to 25
            hours of community service.

            Persons 16 and younger are exempt from curfew if they:

            * Accompany a parent or guardian or any person age 21 or older
            * Complete an errand at the direction of a parent or guardian,
            without detour or stop
            * Ride in a motor vehicle involved in interstate travel
            * Work or return home from a job, without detour or stop
            * Become involved in an emergency
            * Stand on a sidewalk that joins their residence or the residence
            of a next-door neighbor, if the neighbor did not complain to police
            * Attend an official school, religious, or other recreational
            activity sponsored by the District of Columbia, a civic organization, or
            other similar group that takes responsibility for the juvenile (this
            includes traveling to and from the activity)
            * Exercise their First Amendment rights protected by the US
            Constitution , including
            the free exercise of speech, religion, and right of assembly

            What alternative programs are there for young people?

            The District of Columbia has a variety of programs and centers that
            serve young people seeking alternatives to being on the streets,
            including social, educational, recreational, and counseling services.
            For more programs, call the District's Answers Please! helpline at (202)
            INFO-211 (463-6211) or online at answersplease.dc.gov
