— Teenagers and their younger siblings in Dunn have to be home by 11 p.m. – and it's because the city says so, not their parents.

The City Council approved the Youth Protection Regulations Curfew at a meeting Tuesday night, and it went into effect at 11 p.m. Wednesday.

The curfew is from 11 p.m. to 7 a.m. for anyone under 18 years old.

City officials said an increase in juvenile crime and gang activity prompted the curfew.
