City of Vicksburg CurfewTo insure the safety of Vicksburg’s citizens, especially minors, the City of Vicksburg Police Department enforces curfew regulations for children under the age of 18. These regulations make it unlawful for children to loiter, idle, or play unsupervised in parks, playgrounds, beaches, vacant lots, or other public places and buildings between the hours of 10:00 PM and 6:00 AM Sunday through Thursday, and 12:00 AM and 6:00 AM Friday and Saturday during the school year. While school is out, the curfew hours are 12:00 AM to 6:00 AM every night.. Additionally, it is unlawful for children under the age of 17 to be out during school hours, 8:00 AM to 3:00 PM Monday through Friday. This law does not apply to a minor accompanied by his or her parent, guardian, or other adult responsible for child care and custody, or in situations where the minor is upon an emergency errand or legitimate business directed by the parent, guardian or adult supervisor.

Violation of this ordinance will result in a misdemeanor for the child, and can result in the same for the supervising adult if they knowingly permit the minor to violate this regulation. For more information about the curfew regulation, or to report a suspected violation of the law, contact the City of Vicksburg Police Department’s main offices, located at 820 Veto Street between 8:00 AM and 5:00 PM Monday through Friday, or call them at (601) 636-2511.
