Baltimore officials will open two youth centers in advance of the strict new curfew law that takes effect Aug. 8, Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake said Thursday. The curfew centers will open early next month on the city's east and west sides with staffs of about eight, including police officers and social workers, to link young people and their families with services, officials said. The curfew — believed to be among the strictest in the country — will require unsupervised children to be indoors by as early as 9 p.m. It is designed to identify youths and families in need of help, not bring more youths into the criminal system, Rawlings-Blake said.
