INDIANAPOLIS — Marion County will be under a curfew both Friday and Saturday nights, according to Mayor Joe Hogsett.

The curfew for both days will begin at 8 p.m. and end at 6 a.m.

“We are closely monitoring planned events in Indianapolis, in order to ensure the safety of the protestors, residents, and area businesses. It’s clear the weekend provides residents greater opportunities to make their voices heard,” said Mayor Hogsett. “These protestors should be applauded for their commitment and advocacy and it is my hope that the curfew will ensure the types of peaceful evenings we have experienced over the last several days. My thanks go out to the many Marion County residents who are prioritizing the safety of themselves and others, as well as members of law enforcement who help ensure that people can exercise their first amendment right.”

Exceptions to the curfew order include:

  • Travel directly to or from work
  • Those seeking medical care
  • Those “fleeing from dangerous circumstances”
  • Law enforcement
  • News media
  • Federal, state or local public officials “conducting necessary work”
  • Homeless individuals
  • Election-related activities

Violating curfew is a class B misdemeanor punishable by up to 180 days in prison and a fine of up to $10,000.
