Q. - Our neighborhood has experienced
a rash of thefts and acts of vandalism using ballbearings. Large
groups of youths (approx 10-12 years old) are walking the streets
at 2 a.m.
My neighbors and I are reasonably sure
that younger kids are performing the acts due to the articles
taken or not taken during the thefts.
What can we do to get a curfew imposed
so that these younger children can't be out at that time of
night and/or their guardians will be held responsible for their
Answer - Thank you for your question.
The City of Terrell has a curfew that applies to children under
16 years of age. It is in effect from 11:00 PM on Sunday through
Thursday and from 12:30 AM on Friday and Saturday nights.
If any citizen observes children out during curfew times they
should immediately call police and report it. If possible, it
would be helpful to report the number of individuals, their description
(as much as possible), where they were seen and when, whether
they were walking or riding bikes, and which direction they appeared
to be going.
The police need the eyes and ears of citizens like you to help
protect our community. Any time you see anything suspicious,
please call 972-551-6622.
Your question prompts me to realize that we need to increase
our effort to publicize our curfew ordinance.
Hal Richards, Mayor
