The City of Beverly Hills implemented a Citywide Curfew to begin at 1 p.m. on June 1, which will remain in effect through 5:30 a.m. on June 2. The curfew is in response to what officials fear could become the fifth day of civil unrest.

The City has likewise instituted a 1 p.m. Citywide curfew for June 2, to remain in effect through 5:30 a.m. on June 3.

“I know we are all feeling a great sense of uncertainty tonight,” said Mayor Lester
Friedman. “We are grateful to the National Guard and our mutual aid partners from several neighboring agencies for helping us to keep our community safe.”

Los Angeles is among the hotspots where protests over the police killing of George Floyd has morphed over the past four nights into bands of looters breaking into retail establishments.

“The Beverly Hills Police Department is fully staffed and actively patrolling the entire City including residential neighborhoods.  The curfew prohibits anyone from being upon public streets, sidewalks, alleys, parks or any public place,” the City of Beverly Hills broadcast in a press release.

The Courier will continue to update this story as more information becomes available.
