BIRMINGHAM — Birmingham Mayor Randall Woodfin reminds the city of a 2008 curfew law after Thursday’s violent night.
“As we recover from a violent night in Birmingham, I want to remind our residents that Birmingham Police are committed to public safety,” Woodfin said. “We will continue to use every tool in our toolbox to protect the people.”
The city has a 2008 curfew law in place for those under the age of 17 during the following hours:
- During daytime school hours
- Weeknights from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m.
- Weekend and holiday nights from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m.
“We need to understand the safety of our community isn’t only in the hands of police and laws on the books,” Woodfin said. “We all must play a role and take responsibility. As a community, we must learn to police ourselves and keep the peace within our own homes and neighborhoods.”
