A diverse coalition of residents, business owners and safety advocates propose the following policy to address the youth crime wave striking New Orleans Marigny and Bywater areas.
It is: expand the 8pm French Quarter juvenile curfew to the Marigny/Bywater corridor, thereby giving stakeholders and police a tool to address groups of pre-teens and adolescents assaulting women.
This measure not only recognizes an urgent public safety issue but also focuses upon youth who aren’t sufficiently supervised and endanger themselves by not being home at night.
Street assaults are routine and an expanded curfew is one of many wrap around responses. An expanded curfew including the Marigny and Bywater areas is a common sense solution uniting everyone concerned about safety.
