Halloween Curfew In Effect Saturday – Tuesday

DETROIT (WWJ) – Angel’s Night begins Saturday night in Detroit and a curfew is in effect for minors. Detroit Police eastern district commander Steve Dolunt says minors have to be off the streets or face being arrested.

WWJ’s Beth Fisher spoke with Beverly Brown who will patrol as she’s been doing for many years.

“It keeps safety. It shows some presence. It shows that people do care, that they’re not just sitting back sayin’ ” Okay, you can come and do whatever you want to me.” There’s people out there , saying “Look, this is a community … we bought homes, not houses, we bought homes, and I want to live in a home, not just exist in a house,” said Brown.

The curfew is in effect from 6 P.M. to 6 A.M. Saturday and Sunday and on Monday it’s 8 p.m. until 6 a.m.for those under 18.  There’s also an emergency ordinance which prohibits people from from dispensing fuel into portable containers in the  city.

Angel’s Night volunteer Sandra Butler thinks the Angel’s Night campaign is something that should keep going. “It makes a big difference. People … I think crime is deterred when you see people.”
