SHERIFFS SAY NO: Some California Police Officials Say They Won’t Enforce Newsom’s 10PM Curfew

Some Police Departments in California are publicly rebuking Governor Gavin Newsom’s recently imposed curfew; telling residents they simply won’t enforce his order that says all residents must be in their homes after 10pm.

“The Ventura County Sheriff’s Office is aware of Governor Newsom’s latest stay-at-home orders and curfew… In short, we will not be actively enforcing the curfew order,” posted the Ventura County Sheriff Department’s official Twitter account.

Newsom imposed a “limited” curfew Thursday night for most residents in the Golden State; mandating everyone stay home between the hours of 10pm and 5am to slow the spread of CoVID-19.

“The virus is spreading at a pace we haven’t seen since the start of this pandemic and the next several days and weeks will be critical to stop the surge. We are sounding the alarm,” Newsom said in a statement released Thursday afternoon. “It is crucial that we act to decrease transmission and slow hospitalizations before the death count surges. We’ve done it before and we must do it again.”

“Roughly 94% of Californians — 37 million people — live in counties that are in the purple tier, which has forced many businesses in those communities to suspend or severely restrict the number of customers allowed indoors,” reports the Los Angeles Times.
