Curfew Policy
Description of policy

Problem/need identification

Development of policy

Evaluation of policy

It is unquestionable to claim that the world is progressively advancing and entering into the epoch of developments. However, it is very unfortunate to state that the social issues especially juvenile delinquency at the same time is increasing at an accelerated pace. This apparently indicates the fact that youth violence over the years have raised to a much greater extent. In fact, statistical records have revealed the piece of information that juvenile delinquency has become one of the leading causes of deaths in the United States (LeBoeuf & United States - Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, 1996).

In this regard, juvenile curfew policy has been designed, enacted, and enforced as one of the popular control strategy to increased juvenile delinquency and victimization, which is attributable to numerous social trends. The increased juvenile crime rates have raised the concerns across the nation,….

Curfew for Teenagers
Curfews for teenagers have long been a tradition in communities as a way to keep young people off of the streets and out of harm's way, so to speak. A curfew is a specific time set by city officials that determines when a certain age group has to home. This becomes a law of the community, meaning violations are punishable. While curfews may seem to be in the children's best interest, it creates more problems than it solves.

One problem that stems from curfews is that it creates criminals of otherwise law abiding teenagers. If a teenager is on public streets five minutes, ten minutes or an hour past curfew, they are subject to arrest. This makes them a criminal for something that for the rest of the population is not a crime. Moreover, it categorizes or stereotypes all teenagers as delinquents, as if to say any teenager on….

Teen Curfew Laws in the
PAGES 3 WORDS 1159

There is only supposed to be one other teen under 18 inside the car of an under aged driver (O'Donoghue), and this helps keep teen drivers safer, as well, as too many people in the car can be a distraction to the driver. Parents should ensure that these rules are followed, and the curfew causes parents to be more aware of where their children are and when they return home at night. It should open up new avenues of communication, which is good for teens and parents.
The arguments against the teen curfew laws are many. As reporter Mussenden notes, they are difficult to enforce. He writes of a driver education teacher, "But, based on conversations with students, she suspects that few teens obey all the rules, especially curfew restrictions. Police say enforcing some restrictions are a challenge, since telling a 16-year-old from a 19-year-old at 55 miles per hour….

Teenage Curfew Laws

This is a paper that argues for the implementation of curfew laws for the youths to preserve the youths from going astray. It has 3 sources.

The young individuals have extra energy, which if not controlled, may lead them astray and curfew laws are viewed by some as punishment for all teens; however, in the end it is only a preventative measure in a struggle to preserve the youth.

Thomas Ognibene, Councilman of Queens City, has come up with legislation for creating a curfew for the juveniles, which he intends to introduce shortly. According to him the curfew will be applied to boys and girls below eighteen years of age and will be effective from 10:00 P.M. This has created much reaction in the city. Some of the people consider the intended legislation as amounting to throttling the freedom of teen-age boys and girls. Others see it as….

Curfews, military incursions, targeted killing, movement restrictions, arrests, terror acts, humiliation, poverty, and economic condition have affected every single person, right from infants to aged people. Volatility on a daily basis aggravates anxiety and stress - these unfortunate people cease to have any control over their lives (SAC, 2015; PCS Mental Health Department, 2003; Irwin & Scali, 2010).
The present situation in Syria is devastating, aggravated by memories of past conflicts and the ultimate loss of identity and land. Coping methods attack religious beliefs, cultural traditions, and community lifestyle vigorously. The most prominent impacts of relentless conflict include hopelessness; such situations have a lasting effect on people, their family, and the overall community. Discovering methods for overcoming the ordeal they have experienced is the lone means to a better future, for these people (SAC, 2015; Zimiles, 2009).

Curfew at nine: Case analysis

Drug trafficking is a very common issue in most poverty-ridden neighborhoods in the United States. The reason why youth in these areas seek refuge in delusional world of drugs is because they lack proper education and there is indeed no incentive for them to get respectable grades or degrees. For years they have seen their parents working hard to make both ends meet and despite repeated government promises, these people failed to get even the very basic amenities such as clean water and spacious apartments. In these conditions, it is only natural that youth tries to escape the reality and seeks refuge in drugs. ut drug-use has never been an isolated issue; it gives rise to all….

Mrs. Nancy Cannon telephoned from her place of work ( the Capital nsurance Company -- phone [HDDEN] She sounded concerned. She said that on the previ-ous Saturday night, her 14-year-old daughter Amy had come home after her 9: 00 p. m. curfew, smelling of alcohol. She says that she " grounded" her daughter but now wants to talk with a social worker about the situation. Mrs. Cannon requested an appointment for herself alone, indicating that she wanted to sort things out with someone before she dealt further with her daughter.

Parental Responsibilities
PAGES 2 WORDS 697

parents be held responsible for their children's actions?
I believe that parents should be held accountable for their children's criminal actions and according to an article in usiness Wire 72% of Americans agree. ("Harris Interactive Study Reveals Three Quarters of Americans elieve Parents Should be Held Liable for Children's Criminal Actions"). The article reports the results of a study conducted by Harris Interactive which interviewed 2737 people from around the country. The study found that regardless of social or economic standing Americans want to see parents held responsible for the criminal actions of their children. ("Harris Interactive Study Reveals Three Quarters of Americans elieve Parents Should be Held Liable for Children's Criminal Actions")

It is my assertion that holding parents responsible for the criminal actions of their children will deter crime. It will also encourage parents to be more attentive in the upbringing of their children.

Look at any communist regime in the last 100 years, where religion is considered an opiate of the masses. The government becomes god in that circumstance, and can get away with anything, including mass genocide (the Origin of ights - posted on."
True freedom should be given to individuals who do not harm other members of society.

One classic example of a lack of freedom that does not make sense is teenage curfew. Thousands of cities across the nation impose teenage curfews. The governments of those cities choose an arbitrary time by which teens have to be home or they can be taken into custody and their parents can be charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor for letting their child be out past curfew.

Curfew laws impose on what freedoms should be allowed. Why is it necessary for teenagers to come in at a certain time? Who exactly do….

internment camps for the Japanese that were set up and implemented by president Franklin D. oosevelt. The writer explores the history leading up to the decision and the decision itself. There were six sources used to complete this paper.
When Japan attacked Pearl Harbor the American public was outraged and stunned. American citizens had lived with a false sense of security for many years that the soil of the United States was off limits. The Civil War and the American evolution were long in the past and residents believed that the world at large would be to afraid to attack a nation as strong and powerful as the United States. The attack came without warning, killing thousands who were within its grasp. When the smoke had cleared and the bombs had stopped, the nation turned a fearful eye to the white house for guidance. At the time the president was….

("Home Confinement / Electronic Monitoring," n. d.)
House arrest or home confinement started as a program to handle particularly as a sentencing substitute meant for drunk drivers, but rapidly spread over to a number of other offender populations in a lot of jurisdictions. Depending on the nature of crime committed by the offenders, home confinement has been designed with various degrees of stages of restrictions. These can vary from ordinary curfews to complete confinement. For instance, the home confinement program of the Federal courts extends three separate levels of restrictions under the U.S. Probation and Pretrial Services, 2000. Under the first level ie., curfew, it requires the program participants to stay at home daily during certain time periods. Under the second level house arrest it requires on the part of the participants to stay at home round the clock save for attending to work, school, treatment etc. which must be….

(8-16) Furthermore, the tendency to take risks may be increased by peer pressure, emotional lability, and other stresses. Finally, teenagers drive more frequently under higher risk conditions (ie, at night and/or without seatbelts). (1)
The American Academy of Pediatrics, the National Highway Traffic afety Administration, and other governmental, private, and professional organizations have recommended legislation to institute a program of graduated driver licensing (GDL). These programs remove driving restrictions in stages as the TD gains experience and maturity, until full licensure is granted a minimum of 18 months after the learner's permit is obtained. (17) This type of program has been shown to decrease the crash rate of TDs in New Zealand, Canada, and several states in the United tates. (18-22) Each of these programs incorporates different features of the National Highway Traffic afety Administration recommendations, yet it has not been well established which components are the most effective.

Juvenile Justice
How was the "get tough" movement different from the original parens patriae concept? This paper reviews both forms of punishment (or penalizing) when juveniles stray away from law-abiding behaviors.

The history of parens patriae

The system known as parens patriae was developed many centuries ago, beginning in the late fourteenth century, according to the book Juvenile Delinquency: An Integrated Approach. And early in the fifteenth century parens patriae (the law that emerged from this concept was called "equity law") cases were brought before courts in England, and in time parens patriae was imported to the United States, because many legal traditions that settlers in the U.S. adopted were in fact from English law (Burfeind, 2011, 13).

hat does parens patriae mean in Latin? Originally it meant "parent of the country," and in England it offered "far-reaching power" to the King of England, as the ultimate ruler and guardian of the country and….
