Fayetteville mall creates teen escort policy after complaints
Posted June 1, 2012
Fayetteville, N.C. — Cross Creek Mall will soon require that anyone 18 or younger be accompanied in the mall on Friday and Saturday nights by a parent or guardian who is at least 21.
"The Youth Escort Policy is intended to curtail the rising number of unsupervised youth hanging out at Cross Creek Mall and related disturbances occurring there on Friday and Saturday nights," mall officials said Friday. "Cross Creek Mall management is implementing the policy in response to feedback from local government, business leaders and members of the community."
The policy takes effect June 15 and will be enforced after 6 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. Security guards will monitor the entrances to enforce the new policy.
Teens who work at the mall will be allowed to work after 6 p.m. on Friday and Saturday nights but will have to wear identification.
