The Garrison Policy regarding the post curfew applies to all persons,whether residents or guests, located on Fort Drum who are 17 or younger. The purpose of the policy is to protect minorsfrom becoming victims of unlawful activity, reduce incidents of unlawful conduct by minors, and encourage and strengthenadult and parental supervision.“As the weather improves and school lets out, juvenile criminal activity tends to increase in the housing areas. Police willbe identifying juveniles and enforcing the curfew,” said Todd Julian, DES chief of law enforcement. “We need parents’ helpto support and enforce the curfew so our communities remain a great place to work, play and live.“The curfew implemented last summer went a long way to helping protect both children and property. The amount of late-night vandalism and thefts were greatly reduced from previous years. Twenty-five minors received first-time violation warn-ings. Only two minors appeared before the Juvenile Disciplinary Control Board for subsequent violations.”The curfew is in effect from 10 p.m. until 5 a.m. Sunday through Thursday. It is in effect from midnight through 5 a.m. Fri-day and Saturday. Exceptions include those minors who are accompanied by an adult; are in their own yard; are returninghome from their place of employment, a school, church or other voluntary organization event or one officially sponsoredyouth activity in a government facility; or en route to obtaining medical care for themselves or an immediate Family Mem-ber. In all cases, the minor is required to take the most direct route to and from the home.A first violation will result in the minor being taken into temporary custody on the scene by law enforcement personnel. Theparent or responsible adult will be contacted immediately to respond to take custody of the minor. The parent or responsi-ble adult will sign a release statement acknowledging that the minor has been detained for violating the curfew.Subsequent violations will result in a police report being generated and a referral for a mandatory appearance before theJuvenile Disciplinary Control Board. Continued disregard for the policy could result in more severe action against the minorand the sponsor, including being barred from the installation.“When parents are aware of where their kids are and enforce policies like this one, everyone benefits, especially the chil-dren,” Julian said.The policy can be viewed on the Fort Drum portal under Garrison Policy Memorandum 11-18, Fort Drum Curfew for MinorChildren. Information regarding child supervision is outlined in Garrison Policy Memorandum 10-12, Parental Responsibili-ties and Supervision for Children and Youth.
