CORAL SPRINGS, FL – At the moment, Coral Springs doesn’t need a nightly curfew in large part because there’s been no uptick in overall crime in the city during the coronavirus crisis, Coral Spring Police Chief Clyde Parry said this week.

In fact, crime, for the most part, is down, and so are police calls for service, he told the Coral Springs City Commission on Tuesday.

“We’re in pretty good shape,” Parry said during the meeting.

Other Broward County cities, including Coconut Creek and Hallandale Beach, have enacted curfews requiring residents not to go out of their homes either as pedestrians or drivers, unless it’s for essential travel.
