IMPD Sending Out Summer Celebration Curfew Warning
IMPD is sending out warning to young folks at this year's Summer Celebration.
Authorities say they'll be strictly enforcing the curfew especially during the Friday and Saturday night events of Summer Celebration this weekend and next. They say kids 17 and under should be off downtown streets by 11pm or they'll be taken into police custody and held at the Juvenile Detention Center until a guardian picks them up.
The say most events end well before curfew enforcement time. They say there were 22 curfew violations last year during Summer Celebration and they would like to see none this year. Chief Rick Hite says they have also spoken with known gang suspects and told them not to try anything.
Once again, he plans to patrol downtown streets himself during Summer Celebration. IMPD has also set up special lighting, cameras and the Chief says a surveillance helicopter will be up overhead in addition to other surveillance during Summer Celebration events.
