OPENING EXCERPT: Dear Mayor Rawlings and Dallas City Council Members, We write to urge the City of Dallas to end the juvenile curfew (Curfew) currently scheduled to expire in January of 2019. While the purpose cited by the Dallas Police Department (DPD) for enacting and maintaining a curfew—to prevent the victimization of juveniles—is laudable, citing minors and funneling them into the court process for merely being out of their homes or school ultimately harms more than helps them. Juvenile curfews undermine success for young people by bringing them into contact with the criminal justice system.
