PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – City officials are hinting at a possible permanent re-write of Philadelphia’s curfew law because of successful enforcement this weekend of the temporarily tighter curfew hours.

Mayor Michael Nutter used an executive order to roll back the curfew hours, setting a temporary 9 p.m. deadline for anyone under 18 to get off the streets. That led to police this past weekend taking 72 teens into custody.

Now, Nutter’s Deputy Mayor for Public Safety, Everett Gillison, says they’ll work with City Council this fall on a possible revision of the permanent curfew law.

“The mayor is going to work with Council in re-evaluating the entire curfew apparatus in our city ordinances. And we hope to have a longer range strategy to talk about an adjustment going forward.”

The permanent curfew law, which went into effect in 2007, says anyone 13 and under must be home by 10 p.m., 17 and under must be home by midnight.

Reported by Mike Dunn, KYW Newsradio City Hall Bureau Chief.
