WARNER ROBINS, GA — At the May 20, 2024, City of Warner Robins Mayor and Council meeting, the governing body voted unanimously to amend the current code section concerning the city-wide curfew for minors seventeen years of age and younger. The amended Section 13- 66(a) will enforce a curfew between the hours of 11:30 p.m. and 5:00 a.m. Parents and guardians will be held responsible for ensuring their children adhere to this curfew.

Police Chief Wayne Fisher emphasized the importance of this decision, stating, "Keeping minors off the streets during late-night hours is crucial for their safety and well-being. The new curfew helps ensure that our young residents are not exposed to potential dangers that are more prevalent late at night."

Mayor LaRhonda Patrick echoed these sentiments, adding, "Curfews are instituted not only for the protection of our minors but also for the overall safety of our community. By ensuring that minors are home during these hours, we are taking a proactive step in maintaining a secure environment for everyone in Warner Robins."

In addition to amending the curfew, the City of Warner Robins is engaging local businesses to seek their support in enforcing appropriate laws regarding minors in their establishments during curfew hours. Businesses are encouraged to collaborate with law enforcement to ensure minors are not present during restricted hours unless accompanied by an adult.

The amended curfew aims to foster a safer community by reducing the likelihood of minors encountering hazardous situations during late-night hours. The City of Warner Robins remains committed to the welfare of its residents and will continue to implement measures that enhance public safety.
