FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

CONTACT:  Lt. Chris Wynn, 760.839.4700

On August 5, 2011, the Escondido Police Department conducted the seventh curfew sweep since March 2011.  As a result of this sweep, 12 juveniles were arrested for curfew violations.  The juveniles were transported to the police station and were eventually released to their parents/guardians or transported to Juvenile Hall.  The arrested individuals were between the ages of 14 and 17.

A fourteen year old male was arrested for possession of Cocaine for sales and a seventeen year old was arrested in the company of an eighteen year old who was charged with possession of Marijuana for sales.

Five of the arrested juveniles were processed through the Escondido Police Department's Diversion program rather than being referred to juvenile court.  Escondido Police partners with Escondido Education COMPACT to assist with the diversion process.  Juveniles arrested were screened and referred to juvenile diversion based on numerous criteria.  The juveniles will have an opportunity to participate in a structured process aimed at improving decision making that strives to reduce future law enforcement contacts.

Since the curfew sweeps began in March, Escondido Police have processed approximately 127 cases for curfew violations.  Sixty-nine of the cases have gone to diversion and fifty-eight of the cases were sent to juvenile court.

The City of Escondido's current curfew hours are from 11pm to 5am the following day.  Escondido Police will be conducting frequent curfew sweeps during the Summer.
