It has been around for only three years, but Bryan police say its already made a big dent in juvenile crime.
Tuesday night, the Bryan city council held the first of two public hearings on the city's teen curfew which was put into place in 2007.
This is how its worked so far:
*Juvenile arrests are down 78 percent.
*Juvenile criminal activity has dropped 65 percent.
*Juvenile suspects are down 64 percent
*Juvenile victims have been reduced by 35 percent.
According to the ordinance, every three years the council has to get public input and decide whether to renew the curfew, modify it or do away with it.
As it now stands, the curfew prohibits any teen under 17 from being out between 12 a.m. and 5 a.m,, seven days a week.
The next public hearing is April 13.
