It's summer time and that means kids want to stay out late and have fun!
That's why the Albany Police Department is working to put the brakes on kids being out this summer past curfew, something they're not taking lightly.
Under the curfew ordinance, a child under the age of 18 must be at home between the hours of 11:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. Sunday through Thursday and midnight to 6:00 a.m. Friday and Saturday.
Investigator Travis Smith with the Albany Gang Task Force says "the biggest issue is trying to find something for the kids to do summer time it's so many kids out without that much to do some get in trouble and some actually get into the program, and some travel out of town or on vacation with the parents."
For a child's first offense, police say you get a warning, on a second offense the child gets charged and the third offense the parent gets charged.
