On Friday, September 25, the San Diego Police Department conducted a curfew sweep in the Mid-City area. Forty-three juveniles under the age of 18 who violated the 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. curfew were picked up and brought in to the command post set up at Fay Elementary School on 52nd Street.
After processing, approximately 95 percent of those detained were deemed "divertible" and placed in diversion programs offered by various community and faith-based organizations, thereby avoiding court and fines. The remaining curfew violators were considered "not divertible" due to prior criminal records, outstanding warrants, or a history of non-compliance with diversion-program policies.
Organizations on-hand at the command post when the youth were brought in included Inner City Youth (ICY), Price Charities, and the Boys and Girls Club, which offered court-approved programs.
