The City of Stevens Point has recently changed their curfew ordinance to more closely mirror Portage County and Plover's curfew ordinances, and Police Officers and Deputies in Portage County will be paying more attention to under age children who are out past their curfew time.
Children under the age of 17 cannot be out away from home without a parent or adult supervision between 11:00 pm and 5:00 am in these municipalities.

Children violating the Curfew ordinance can receive a fine of $50, and the parent or guardian could receive a citation and fine between $113.80 and $249.
