Sheriff Crow Lifts Curfew

Polk County Sheriff Lawrence W. Crow, Jr., has lifted the curfew that he imposed last Saturday, August 14, 2004.  Under the provisions of Florida Statute 870.043, due to clear and present danger of general public disorder in the Polk County disaster areas, the Sheriff declared a dusk to dawn curfew in areas of Polk County where power outages and extensive storm damages existed. That curfew has now been lifted. No areas of Polk County are under curfew at this time.
