Does Allen have a juvenile curfew?

Yes. Kids ages 10 through 16 can’t be in a public place or on the premises of any establishment after 11 p.m. Sunday through Thursday or after midnight on Friday and Saturday.

The curfew doesn’t apply if juveniles are with a parent or guardian, on an errand for their parent or guardian, at a church/school event or work-related activity, or dealing with an emergency.

Juveniles who stay out too late can face fines of up to $500. Their parents can be fined if they knowingly permit—or, by insufficient control, allow—children to break curfew. Owners, operators and employees who allow juveniles to hang out in their establishments past curfew may also be subject to the fine.

The curfew was originally established in 2007 and must be reviewed every three years, in accordance with state law. The ordinance was last renewed on June 25, 2019.
