It would be helpful and interesting to know the time of day when this fight occurred with the juveniles involved. This may be data to support the need for a juvenile curfew in Oakmont that could provide police officers with a useful tool to address and curb similar situations in the future. Verona has a curfew. Do Patch readers have an opinion as to whether Oakmont should have a similar curfew for juveniles? What do you think are the pros and cons on curfews for juveniles?

I thought we already had a Curfew, with the sounding of the Fire Whistle?

As I understand it, Verona has a curfew for juveniles. Oakmont does not. When the Verona curfew begins, juveniles cross over the viaduct to come to Oakmont. A curfew might serve as a practical tool for officers to use to get kids off the streets. Really, what does a juvenile have to do after 11:00 pm that couldn't be accomplished before that time? Of course, juveniles who are going to or leaving work or who have a legitimate reason for being out and about would not be subject to any penalty. It does give our officers some "teeth."

I have been asking about a curfew for 2 years. I have approached a couple council members and was told "we didn't need one". REALLY!!!!! I was also told maybe loitering could be enforced. Dahhh, not even close. Some certain citizens thinks that a curfew would make it look bad for Oakmont, news flash....it's not your mothers Oakmont anymore.

I agree with the curfew...but it is a shame that the town has to supervise the kids instead of the parents.

After reading the police blog...what good would a curfew due when most of the involved were so called adults

"Jeffrey A. Houston, 18; Jason Paul Chieffo, 18; and Keri Ann McAndrew, 38, of Oakmont; a juvenile from Oakmont; and two juveniles from Penn Hills" = 3 Oakmont adults, 1 Oakmont juvenile, 2 Penn Hills juveniles is what I read.

I live 1 block from the incident and called 911 repeatedly starting at 10:45PM. I was disconnected the 1st time and when I finally spoke to an operator, I was told they had multiple calls about the same incident. It took close to 10 minutes for the police to arrive. At 10:59PM, the police arrived. Sadly, the same area in our neighborhood has had many visits from our police department. I don't know if a curfew would make a difference. I understand a parent was involved in this particular incident and tried to disperse the crowd.
