Statement from HPD Regarding Curfew Announcement

Consistent with the Mayor’s directive and to keep and maintain order in the city, a mandatory citywide curfew has been implemented, which will be in effect from 12 a.m. (midnight) until 5 a.m. Officers who encounter an individual in apparent violation of the curfew should stop and investigate to determine the circumstances warranting their presence in the public domain.  Officers are expected to exercise their discretion relative to these encounters and to take whatever action is most appropriate.  Persons involved in flood relief efforts, flood relief volunteers, individuals seeking shelters, first responders, and persons going to and from work (late shift workers) are exempt from the curfew.

This order will remain in effect until further notice.  Houstonians will be advised when the curfew is lifted.
