Notice For Parents From Canon City Police Department - Posted March 30

***PARENTS***   We are getting reports that groups of juvenile’s are congregating in parks and going to parties during the stay at home period. We need your help to impress the severity of COVID-19 and discuss the Governor's orders to shelter in place with our younger citizens. The Governor’s order says to only leave the home for a necessary activity as defined in the order, no gatherings larger than 10 people, and maintaining a six foot physical distance at all times. You can go outside for activity and fresh air by taking walks, spending time in your yard but not congregating in public places. We know this can be challenging with young people who may not grasp the severity of the situation, but we need your help to make them understand. The penalty for violating the Governor’s stay at home order can be up to $1,000 fine and/or a year in jail. While charging teens or those who allow the order to be broken on their property is not our first choice, CCPD will be enforcing these rules to make sure we stem the spread of the virus. Canon City ordinance 9.48.020 which has been in existence since 1995 already set a curfew for those under the age of eighteen to prevent them from loitering or aimlessly driving or riding around between the following times.

Saturday 12:01 am – 6:00 am  

Sunday 12:01 am - 6: 00 am

Sunday 10:00 pm – 6:00 am

Monday 10:00 pm – 6:00 am

Tuesday 10:00 pm – 6:00 am

Wednesday 10:00 pm – 6:00 am

Thursday 10:00 pm – 6:00 am

 

The Governor’s order is meant to stop the spread and save lives. Please talk with your children about the Governor’s order and existing City ordinance and know that we are here to help reinforce that message to keep those you love safe. CCPD is asking for your help in keeping our community safe. Stop the Spread.. #CANONSTRONG
