In line with Nicole R. Green

about Curfews in the Encyclopedia of Law Enforcement:

In general, curfews are regulations that prohibit the presence of people on streets or other public properties during certain hours of the day. For more than a century, curfews have been invoked at various times in the United States of America in an effort to maintain social order. Curfews enacted in the United States of America fall into one of two categories: juvenile curfews or riot curfews. America's first juvenile curfew laws emerged in the late 19th century in large urban areas and were intended to eliminate crime among immigrant youth. Curfews were also used by many communities during World War II to prevent children from becoming wayward while their parents were toiling in the war effort.
