***City of Milwaukee Curfew***

The curfew will be in effect from 9:00 pm tonight until 7:00 am Sunday morning.

People exempt from curfew are individuals going to and coming from work, social workers, and members with the Office of Violence Prevention.

***Please stay home and be safe.***

From JSOnline:

Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett has announced a 9 p.m. curfew for the city Saturday night after peaceful Friday protests broke into violent unrest that left 16 buildings looted and an MPD officer injured after being shot. About 50 people were arrested.

And members of the Wisconsin National Guard will be in the city to respond to protests.

The curfew ends at 7 a.m. Sunday. Anyone violating the curfew can be arrested and fined $691, according to Milwaukee police.

People who are going to work, government officials, social service workers and credentialed members of the press acting in their official capacity are exempt from the curfew.
