Indy Considers Changing Weekend Curfew For Teens From 1 AM To 11 PM

March 17, 2014 Updated Mar 17, 2014 at 2:24 PM EST

INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) -- Indianapolis leaders are considering a curfew change for teens in the city.

Monday night, an Indianapolis City-County Councilor will introduce an ordinance that would move up the city's curfew for 15- to 17-year-olds by two hours to 11:00 pm on weekends.

The proposal is backed by Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard and IMPD Police Chief Rick Hite and comes less than a week after city officials launched a formal anti-violence initiative.

Under Indy's current curfew law, teens are allowed to stay out until 1:00 am on Saturdays and Sundays.
