Memphis City Council tackles crime at weekly meeting

MEMPHIS, Tennessee (WMC) – Memphis City Council members are scheduled to meet Tuesday to address crime in the city for the second time this month.

At a Memphis City Council meeting two weeks ago, city leaders planned to discuss a curfew, but that discussion was put on hold.

Now, the issue is being revisited this week.

In more specific detail than was seen earlier this month, Tuesday’s agenda called for a “strong enforcement of curfews” and penalties for teens and minors who violated the curfew.

The current Memphis teen curfew is as follows:

Those 16 and under must be at home between 10pm and 6am Monday through Thursday.

Friday to Sunday, these hours are 11pm to 6am

For 17 and 18 year olds, they must be home from 11pm to 6am Monday through Thursday and midnight to 6am on weekends.

The agenda also says the Memphis Police Department will provide quarterly updates on drag racing.

In addition to the report, MPD will also update the Commission on new police shifts, vehicle inventory, sexual assault kit processing and manpower deployments.
