Perkasie Police have asked Borough Council to consider a curfew for minors, similar to one Quakertown Borough Council passed in 2006. It would bar anyone under the age of 18 from being on the streets, or in restaurants or other public places, between 11:00am and 5:00pm Sunday through Thursday and midnight and 5:00 weekends. They would be allowed out if they were with a parent or guardian and for emergencies, work, or school, church or club events. Police Chief Joseph Gura told council the curfew would be just one more tool to keep the borough and its minors safe.
