Do you know the Valley's curfew laws?

How late is your kid allowed to stay out?

CHANDLER, Ariz. -  School's out for the summer which means teens will probably be staying out a little later than normal on the weekends and weekdays -- but hopefully not too late.

The Chandler Police Department took to Facebook to remind parents about curfew.

According to Chandler police, curfew is 10 p.m. for kids 15 years old and younger, and midnight for teens 16 - 17 years old. Teens can be out after these times if they are accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.

The curfew laws, according to Chandler police, are enforced every day all year long and penalties depend on the "sanctions the courts issue once someone is cited for curfew violation."

According to police, the curfew hours are considered to be over at 5 a.m.
