DeKalb County Commissioners passed a juvenile curfew law back in September. It says anybody younger than 17 can’t be out between midnight and 5 am, with some limited exceptions.

The Brookhaven Post reminds us that the curfew takes effect March 1.

According to The Post, when commissioners approved the curfew Commissioner Larry Johnson said, “This ordinance is not intended to make criminals of our youth. The purpose is to aid our officers in addressing juvenile loitering and safeguard our youth so that they do not become victims of crime.”
