The City of Henderson's curfew ordinance states that "it is unlawful for any child under the age of 18, without being on any lawful business, or engages in any lawful occupation, not accompanied by his parents or guardian or other adult person having legal care, custody and control of such child, to loiter, wander, stroll or be upon, in or about any of the public streets, avenues, alleys or other public places in the city at any time between the hours of 10:00 p.m. and 5:00 a.m. of the succeeding day, seven days a week. However, on Friday and Saturday, all school holidays, and during summer vacation, the hours of curfew shall be extended to midnight." This law is strictly enforced in Henderson. If a juvenile is picked up for violation of curfew, they will receive a citation for this offense and then must be released to a parent or guardian. If a parent or guardian cannot be located, the juvenile is transported to Westcare in Las Vegas, where they will remain until a parent or guardian can be located. After receiving the citation or being picked up from Westcare, a court date is scheduled for the juvenile to appear in front of a judge at the Clark County Juvenile Court. This court appearance also requires the appearance of the parent or guardian.
