View the results of the "2005 Insta-Poll on Youth Curfews," posted by the National League of Cities.

Most city officials from localities with youth curfews believe that their laws are helping to combat juvenile crime, a poll has found.

According to the poll of mayors and city officials from 436 cities—conducted by the Washington-based National League of Cities—96 percent of officials from towns with curfews believe the laws are “very” or “somewhat” effective in preventing youth crime. Ninety-three percent of those officials view curfew enforcement as a good use of police officers’ time.
