SPECIAL REPORT: Dayton Officers on a Curfew Sweep

DAYTON -- Dayton police brought in extra officers this past weekend to enforce the city's curfew for minors.

In a special report, reporter Nicole Grigg, rode around with Dayton police as they tracked down kids breaking the law.

The ordinance within the city states a curfew is to be enforced between 11:00 pm to 5:00 am. The ordinance goes on to say that no minor under 18 can be on a street, highway, park, alley or other public place between those hours.

Dayton Lieutenant Andrew Booher said they set up a curfew sweep after complaints were coming in from neighbors about kids out past dark, into the early morning hours.

Majority of the complaints were coming in around the Walnut Hills neighborhood and Patterson Park area.

"Its not just these kids hanging out. It's the fact they are out way into the early hours of the morning," he said.

The ordinance states minors can only be out if they are accompanied by an adult, the minor is traveling to a place or employment or they are emancipated.

While on the ride along with Dayton police, in a little more than two hours, 18 kids were taken in for curfew violations.

Back at the East Patrol Operations, volunteers were on hand to write the teens tickets and call the parents.

One parent, from Cincinnati, had no idea his girls were down in Dayton.

Several other girls were from different areas, like Huber Heights. There parents also had no idea the girls were within city limits.

"Some of the parents were under the understanding their kids would be at a friends house. They had no idea," said Lt. Booher.

Booher said his department is now writing the parents violations too.

According to the ordinance, a violation can be subject up to $250. Many of the parents shocked police were issuing them citations too.

"It's still their kid. They're still responsible to make sure their child is at where they are supposed to be," said Booher.

Many of the kids were found inside a Hookah Bar off Patterson Road in Dayton.

The smoke shop is only open to people 18 and older.

The business told police they do card.

At the end of the sweep, police had one arrest -- a few teens with marijuana on them.

Officer Michael Saylors said one parent sided with their children instead of the cops, "one parent told them to run from us next time."

Several cities in our area don't have curfews. We found Kettering and Centerville are two cities that don't.

While Springfield, Beavercreek, Huber Heights all have different curfew ordinances.
