BALTIMORE (WNEW/AP) — Baltimore’s new curfew law, which will require children and teenagers to be indoors by 9 p.m., will go into effect this summer.

Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake said Monday she would sign the bill in the next several days. The law goes into effect 60 days after she signs it.

After approving the measure in a preliminary vote last month, the council passed the bill 11-2 Monday evening. Protesters chanted “no youth curfew” before the vote.

The new curfew will require youth under the age of 14 to be indoors at 9 p.m., and teenagers 14-16 to be inside at 10 p.m. on weeknights and 11 p.m. on weekends.

Baltimore’s new curfew law will be among the strictest in the country.
