Prince George’s County Executive Angela Alsobrooks has announced a teen curfew, for at least 30 days, starting last midnight. This will affect teens under 17. The curfew states teens must be home unless accompanied by an adult, from Sunday through Thursday between the hours of 10 PM and 5 AM and between the hours of 11:59 PM and 5 AM on Fridays and Saturdays.

Legal guardians can be fined up to $250 for repeated violations and could have their children turned over to the Department of Social Services.

Some exceptions to the curfew apply, such as youth accompanied by a parent/guardian or youth that are at a place of employment.
