Mayor Joe Hogsett Addresses Curfew Restrictions
No curfew Wednesday night; expected to be reinstated Friday, Saturday nights
INDIANAPOLIS – Today, Mayor Joe Hogsett announced he does not plan to extend the curfew order for Marion County for the nights of Wednesday, June 3 and Thursday, June 4. Additionally, the mayor’s office indicated that the city plans to reinstate the curfew order for the nights of Friday, June 5 and Saturday, June 6 to address public safety needs associated with the larger projected crowd size of planned weekend gatherings.
The following statement can be attributed to Mayor Joe Hogsett:
“After a difficult weekend, Indianapolis has experienced three days of peaceful protest that has powerfully contributed to a national conversation on our criminal justice system. To the men and women of IMPD: thank you for protecting first amendment rights, under difficult conditions, as our community wrestles with necessary change. And to those who have chosen the path of nonviolent protest—we see you, we hear you, and we will work with you over the coming days, weeks, and months.
For the safety of what we believe will be much larger demonstrations this weekend, and given the violence and property damage we experienced this past weekend, we intend to reinstate the curfew order for Friday and Saturday. I do not make this decision lightly, but it is my belief it will better allow our city to preserve this promising peace.”
