Virginia Beach, Va. – The Virginia Beach Police Department is reminding the public to abide by curfew restrictions.

The following message is from Virginia Beach Police:

As the warmer weather approaches and with school breaks just around the corner, the Virginia Beach Police Department will be gearing up for our Summer Operations at the Oceanfront. Every year in the summer months, we send additional resources to the Oceanfront area to ensure that all our residents and visitors can safely enjoy themselves at the resort area in one of the safest cities in the nation. In past years, we have noticed a larger than normal crowd at the Oceanfront, as a large number of visitors tend to be juveniles that remain out in public past 11:00 p.m. The Virginia Beach Police Department would like to remind citizens that members of the department will heavily enforce the city code for curfew. If officers come in contact with a juvenile past 11:00 p.m., the juvenile will be detained and held at the Second Police Precinct until a parent/guardian is able to pick them up. The juvenile will be cited for the violation and he/she, along with a parent/guardian will be required to appear in court. We are striving for voluntary compliance from the public.
