(SALISBURY, Md.) - The Salisbury Police Department will conduct several community forums to seek public input on the proposed curfew ordinance. The meetings will be held at the following times and places:

Wednesday, August 19th, 6 p.m. at the St. Francis de Sales Parish Center

Thursday, August 20th, 7 p.m. at St. Paul's AME Zion Church, 410 Delaware Ave.

Wednesday, August 26th, 6 p.m. at the Chipman Cultural Center, Broad St.

This comes after the Salisbury City Council chose not to move forward with a proposed city-wide curfew.

The curfew was proposed in March after a recent spike in juvenile crimes.

It would prevent children under 14 from being in a public place between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m. Teenagers between 14 and 16 wouldn't be allowed in a public place from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m. from the Friday before Memorial Day to the last Sunday of August.

More meetings are anticipated to be announced at a later time. For more information, please contact Christine Chestnutt at 410 548-3165.
