(Hillsboro) — The annual Highland County-wide curfew will commence Friday, October 1st, 2021 for all persons under the age of 18 years. The curfew will run through October 31st, 2021 and require all persons under the age of 18 years to be off the streets and in their homes by 10pm, Monday through Thursday and by midnight Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Judge Kevin Greer of the Highland County Common Pleas/Juvenile Division says- “The curfew does not apply where children are accompanied by parents, legal guardians or custodians. Exception is also made for children attending church, school or employment activities. Enforcement will be handled by all law enforcement agencies, including the sheriff’s department, city or village police and juvenile probations officers.”

Judge Greer added- “Noting the court has no authority to set Beggar’s Night and strictly as a convenience to law enforcement, it is suggested each city, village and organization, should they elect to have Beggar’s Night, set the same on the last Thursday in October between 6pm-8pm.”
