Curfew  for minors

Curfew Hours: As a general rule, minors who are under 16 years old cannot be away from home from 10 p.m. until 5 a.m. the following day. For minors between 16 and 18 years old, the curfew is midnight to 5 a.m. However, there are some significant exceptions.

If the minor is with an adult or has been specifically directed to a location by an adult for a legitimate reason, then there is no curfew violation. For example, if a parent sends his or her 15-year-old son to a pharmacy to purchase some medicine at 10:30 p.m., then the minor would have a valid defense if he receives a citation claiming he violated curfew restrictions. There are other key exceptions as well, including the minor being involved in an emergency or going directly to or from work.

Pets and animals

Maricopa County's leash law prohibits pet owners from allowing their animals to run at large outside the homeowner's property. The animal must be confined to the home or property, either inside the house or within an enclosed yard. When a pet is outside of its confined area, it must be restrained on a leash no longer than six feet in length.

Please Be Aware:

  • Enforcement of most laws and ordinances involving dogs is the responsibility of Maricopa County Rabies and Animal Control.
  • Dogs may not be loose unless they are being used for livestock control or hunting.
  • Pets outside of the residence must be in a suitable enclosure or confined on a leash no longer than six feet in length.
  • Pets must be leashed in neighborhood parks and Community Park at all times.
  • It is unlawful for dog owners to harbor a dog that barks or howls on a consistent basis and disturbs the peace of neighbors..
