KANSAS CITY, Missouri - Kansas City police officers will spend another weekend enforcing the city's new teen curfew.
Officers will be back on the County Club Plaza Friday and Saturday nights to make sure underage teens are obeying the curfew.
Unaccompanied minors under 18 must be off the streets in the Plaza, Westport, Downtown, 18th and Vine Streets and Zona Rosa at 9 p.m.
The city council passed the curfew in response to a shooting two weeks ago on the Plaza that wounded two girls and boy.
None of those injuries were life-threatening.
Police, city officials and business owners agreed the first weekend of the curfew was a success.
"We're not done, said Mayor Sly James. "We need to add more carrots to the whole thing and not as many sticks. But we need to keep it going and everyone needs to remember that this institution of a curefew is for the safety of everyone.''
The curfew continues through the last Sunday in September.
