Back in September, Phillipsburg cracked down on its local curfew, saying it was a zero tolerance approach needed after law enforcement incidents involving minors.

The local ordinances ban kids younger than 18 from being out in public places after 10 p.m. without an adult chaperone.

Violators of the curfew could be slapped with a $1,000 fine.
