HVPD promotes spring break safety, Police Involving Parents program

The Highland Village Police Department is promoting safety and its Police Involving Parents program during spring break.

In Highland Village Alert sent this week, the department urged parents to pay close attention to their kids’ whereabouts and activities.

“Juveniles tend to stay out later in the evening and while parents are at work during the day” during spring break, the department said, which “impacts our quality of life in Highland Village.”

HVPD wants to remind parents and kids that curfew for children 16 and under is 11 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and midnight on Friday and Saturday nights. The Shops at Highland Village has its own Code of Conduct rules, including one that requires kids to be accompanied by a parent or guardian after 7 p.m., unless they are working, shopping or dining.

“In order to not only maintain but grow our partnerships, please talk with your children about safety and appropriate behavior,” the department said. “If the Highland Village Police have cause to interact with your unattended child regarding their conduct you will be contacted and offered the option of responding to the location to assist in resolving the problem or your child may be issued a court citation or taken into custody.”
