According to a release from the Press Office, the effort is being carried out by the Ministry of Human Development, with the help of the Police Department, NOPCAN, and Youth Enhancement Services. Under the terms of the city regulations, no child under the age of sixteen will be allowed to be in a street, park, or other public place between the hours of eight p.m. and six a.m. without an adult present.
