STEUBENVILLE, Ohio -- In an attempt to tighten up existing laws and crack down on crime, leaders in Steubenville are taking another look the city's curfew.    
On Tuesday night, members of the Safety Committee discussed the curfew and forwarded proposed changes to council.
They called for simply altering the time frame that children under 17 can be out at night. If the proposed changes are passed by members of council, it would mean that children ages 15 and under would not be allowed out unsupervised between the hours of 10 p.m. and 5 a.m.
For those ages 16 and 17, the hours would be from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m.
“The police can't be everywhere at all times,” City Manager Tim Boland said. “It is a significant tool that the police will have, and it will give them a little more support tools they can use. I anticipate it'll have positive effects."
Council will have a chance to pass the changes next month.
