Albany --  Albany police plan to step up patrols to curb burglaries and curfew violators. Chief James Younger told city commissioners today that there has been a rash of burglaries involving juveniles over the last several months.

He says a stronger police presence will deter crime in the community, plus remind kids they're not supposed to be out late. "A number of youths have been involved in burglaries and we're very much concerned about that," said APD Chief James Younger.  "We also want to remind parents that there is a curfew, that curfew applies to youth that are 17 and under."

Curfew is 11:00 PM during the week, midnight on weekends. Typically, for a first violation, a child will be taken home to parents and given a warning.

If there is a second violation, the child and the parent could be charged.
