The City of Lake Forest has a safe community thanks to the partnership between the citizens and the police department. Together we are able to be more proactive and head off potential problems before they get out of control.

One example of our teamwork is shown in the Curfew Ordinance. Not only is Curfew a wonderful tool that parents and the police department have to help children who have not fully developed their own sense of judgment, but it is also a way to set limits to help youths understand and respect the law. Curfew also encourages parents to know where their children are. As the old public service announcement stated on TV, "It's 11:00 and there's a Curfew - do you know where your children are?"
