KILLEEN, TX (KXXV) -

The city of Killeen is looking to revise their youth curfew. The city reviews the curfew about every three years.

Currently, the curfew states that anyone under the age of 18 must be indoors by 11 p.m. on weekdays and midnight on weekends during the academic school year.

"No child should be out after 10 o'clock under 18. Maybe they have a job, they may have athletics and want to go to games or they may work, but if they do and the police stop them then they should have a pass to say I am going to these events," Councilwoman Shirley Fleming said. 

Although the city council has not adopted the 10 p.m. curfew, the ordinance will not be official until May 23 so there is still time for changes.
