Mayor Elsa Paz made the announcement at this morning's Good Morning San Pedro Radio Show that the San Pedro Town Council and the San Pedro Police Department have reinstated a 9 o'clock curfew for children 16 years old and younger. This curfew takes place immediately and runs from 9p.m. Sunday to Thursday all night long and starts an hour later on Friday and Saturday at 10p.m.

The San Pedro Police Department makes notice that a number of crimes are being committed by underage children and that this curfew is one incentive to deter crime on the island. The Justice of the Peace Committee has pledged their support to conduct patrols along with the Police Officers. First offenders will be taken into police custody and his/her parents will be given a warning. After the first warning parents can be arrested if their child breaks the curfew laws multiple times.

SAN PEDRO TO IMPLEMENT CURFEW

A curfew for minors will come into effect on Monday for Ambergris Caye. The announcement was made by the Mayor of San Pedro,Elsa Paz.

Elsa Paz – Mayor, San Pedro

“We have come to the conclusion to make a curfew in San Pedro because we met with Police last week and according to their records for 2009, the crime in our municipality has increased and most of these criminals were minors. Along with my council I suggested that the best thing we can do to prevent crime and protect our tourist and to have a safer community is to implement this curfew. We got together with the Justice of the Peace Association, Police Department and Council and we will implement this curfew. It will from nine until Sunday to Thursday, Friday and Saturday we will give them an extra hour. As the Mayor I think crime has gotten out of control”
