Thank you to everyone for cooperating with the curfew order issued last night in response to multiple days and nights of civil unrest in neighboring cities. Given that the City of Tustin shares borders with cities experiencing looting, violence and other destruction of public and private property, and given the widespread violence and property damage going on across the country, the nighttime curfew order issued last night was adopted as a proactive measure to ensure the safety of Tustin’s residents and businesses.
Again, the City of Tustin fully supports the public’s right to peaceably assemble and protest, but the City will not tolerate violence, vandalism, rioting, and looting.
The City of Tustin is actively monitoring protest activities as we evaluate the need for any further curfew orders.
Should additional curfew orders be issued, all persons during the curfew would be prohibited from traveling on public streets, alleys, parks, or any public place. Traveling for purposes that include seeking emergency care, going to and from work, religious services, seeking or giving emergency care would be exempt. All law enforcement, fire and medical personnel, City personnel, as well as personnel authorized by the Tustin Police Department (TPD) and credentialed members of the services would also exempt.
The TPD is working closely with its law enforcement partners, is fully staffed to enforce any curfew orders that may be issued, and is actively patrolling the city to ensure the safety of our community.
