Proposal could add daytime curfew for teens, 4 March 2008, WCNC, Charlotte, North Carolina
“A lot of times we get kids (truant) who have never done anything,” said Officer Jeff Miller, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department. “They get out with the wrong group of people and make a bad decision.”
Police say curfew laws are a tool that allows them to approach young people in the streets and hold parent (sic) accountable.

City considers teen curfew
Council members appeared to be in agreement that kids should be in school during the day, and in bed well before sun up, while allowing that there are exceptions when kids would not be punished for being on the streets after curfew.
Since some parents home school, their children could be on the streets at different hours.
