    Hello. The answer will depend on whether you are talking about a curfew as a condition of bail or as a punishment as part of a sentence. If you are referring to a curfew as a condition of your bail, there is no minimum or maximum. If however, you have been sentenced to a Community Order with a Curfew Requirement, this can be between 2 and 16 hours in any 24 hour period. If you refer to a Curfew imposed as part of the early release scheme (Home Detention Curfew) the operational period will normally be between 7pm and 7am.
