The Los Angeles AFB curfew policy is intended to provide a safer community and better protects children from becoming victims of crime or becoming involved in delinquent behavior.
Consistent with the Los Angeles Municipal Code (LAMC), the base curfew restricts minors (children under the age of 18) from being outdoors or in public places, unless accompanied by an adult, between the hours of 10 p.m. and 5:30 a.m.
Exceptions to the base curfew policy apply only when a minor is attending an event, or going to or returning directly home from an event (such as a youth program activity, movie, school dance, etc.), involved with an emergency such as a fire, natural disaster, or automobile accident. Another exception would be a youth sent on an errand by the parent with a note annotating the need for the errand after curfew.
Parents are still required to notify the base entry gate the child will be entering during curfew hours. In the event parents fail to provide pre-notification of a child's arrival time, a dependent/civilian misconduct report will be completed.
