As we approach the upcoming holiday season, the Eastvale Police Department would like to remind parents and juveniles about the city of Eastvale’s curfew ordinance. As students will have several days to weeks off from school, we ask that parents enforce and remind their children about all laws, municipal codes and ordinances.
