To combat juvenile violence and crime, the Shakopee City Council passed a uniform juvenile curfew ordinance. Youth age 17 and under should not be out between the hours of 10:30 p.m. and 5:00 a.m. unless accompanied by a parent or guardian. There is an exception to the curfew for students who are lawfully attending, going to or returning from school, church or community sponsored athletic, musical or social activities or events, or place of employment. Shakopee police officers enforce the curfew ordinance seven days a week. Many juveniles caught out after curfew are either released to their parents or taken to the Scott County Juvenile Facility.
CompuKid is a child security/identification system, which will take a child's picture using a Digital Video Capture Device that interacts with custom software. The picture is cropped to size and placed in the CompuKid personal file. The software then captures the child's fingerprints, using an ink-less finger print capture device, and includes them as part of the child's file. Finally, statistical information is entered into the file to make it complete. A floppy disk with the saved information is given to the parents or guardian of the child.
The Shakopee Police Department periodically uses CompuKid at community events. To request it at your event, contact the Shakopee Police Department’s Crime Prevention Officer at 952-233-9400. Click here for a listing of upcoming CompuKid dates and times.
