Cuyahoga Falls police share thoughts on the new curfew's effectiveness since its start in May.
Cuyahoga Falls police report the number of violations along the riverfront are down by a great deal thanks to the curfew implementation. Captain Jack Davis of the Cuyahoga Falls Police Department said that through mid-July in 2010, police had 30 documented calls. Through mid-July in 2011, that number has been reduced to four. "It's made a huge difference," Davis said. "Kids are still coming down with their parents, but kids are also coming down and leaving before 8 p.m. It's made a big difference with police patrol. [Officers] are able to concentrate on what they're their for and not chasing kids around the area all night." Previous Coverage:

VIDEO Cuyahoga Falls Police Argue Curfew Will Help Halt 'Drug Deals' and 'Gang-Related Activity' Along Riverfront
Police chief and mayor echo concerns of minors unsupervised along riverfront.
Cuyahoga Falls City Council met Monday night to discuss a proposed curfew for minors along the riverfront. During the last two summers, officers said they’ve seen an increase in the number of unattended minors and violent incidents, from the amphitheater, which host Rockin' on the River concerts, to the fountain near the entrance to Hibachi Japan. “The idea wasn’t to necessarily ban people under 18 from coming down to the area, but rather have them come down with family members, with a parent, with an adult responsible for them,” said Police Capt. Jack Davis. “We really feel that by doing that it will increase the safety for all our visitors down there, especially the younger ones.” During the public discussion, Cuyahoga Falls Police Chief…

Cuyahoga Falls Police reports unusually high number of daytime drunken driving arrests in January and February.
Late afternoon and early evening drunken driving arrests kept Cuyahoga Falls police officers busy in the early months of 2011. Lieutenant Dale P. Gramley said that lately, he's noticed significant upswing in afternoon DUI arrests during January and February. The department’s third shift, which begins at 4 p.m. and ends at midnight, traditionally averages between four and eight DUI arrests each month. But in January motorists racked up 14 DUI arrests during that shift. “It was really unusual for our shift to have 14 DUIs,” Gramley said. “We didn’t have any major holidays, which typically lead to an increase in DUI arrests.” DUI arrests are often much higher during the summer months, likely due to the abundance of holiday celebrations -- …
