June 3, 2020 -- For the fifth straight night, Santa Monica imposed a curfew Wednesday as the city recovers from looting and sporadic violence that erupted Sunday as thousands of protesters descended on the city.

The curfew goes into effect at 6 p.m. and ends at 6 a.m. Thusday with protests over the killing of George Floyd continuing in the Los Angeles region.

The curfew is more strict than the one imposed by Los Angeles County, which was set to begin at 9 p.m. and end also at 6 a.m., as the protests became more peaceful.

"Curfews are set based on an overall assessment of the risks of conduct posing a threat to persons or property," City officials said.

"The City will be reevaluating the circumstances each day to see whether a curfew remains necessary and if so what the appropriate start time for that curfew is."

City officials said public safety will continue working with regional law enforcement agencies and the National Guard "to keep our city safe."

That includes periodic monitoring by helicopter Thursday afternoon and evening, officials said.

At 6 p.m., Downtown parking structures will close and rideshare and shared mobility service into Santa Monica will be suspended, officials said.

It is the fifth curfew since the City followed Los Angeles' lead and closed the city down at 8 p.m. Saturday night.

The City will issue updates by SMAlerts, through social media, and email. Those interested can sign up for Santa Monica emergency alerts at or text SMALERTS to 888-777
