The provisions of this Article III shall apply to all of the articles and sections of this chapter.
Police officers acting under this chapter shall use their discretion either in detaining or citing juveniles or persons whom they suspect to be juveniles, in determining age, and may require proof of such age.
It shall be unlawful for the parent, guardian or other adult person having the care and custody of a juvenile person under the age of 18 years to permit or authorize such juvenile to engage in conduct which constitutes a violation of this chapter. The violation of this section shall include, but not be limited to, a parent, guardian or other adult person having the care and custody of the juvenile failing to take charge and control of said juvenile, and removing said juvenile from a potential violation of this chapter after being notified of such potential violation by a police officer or a Borough official.
Any parent, guardian, or other adult person having the care and custody of a juvenile can be charged with a violation of this chapter in addition to the juvenile. The violation by a parent, guardian, or other adult person having the care and custody of a juvenile who violates this chapter shall be considered a separate and distinct offense from that of the juvenile.
It shall be a violation of this chapter for any person to aid or abet any other person in violating the provisions of this chapter.
Any person, whether adult or juvenile, found to have violated the provisions of this chapter by a Magisterial District Judge or a court of competent jurisdiction shall pay a fine of $50 and costs of prosecution, and, if an adult, in default of the payment of such fine and costs shall undergo imprisonment for not more than 30 days. In the event of a juvenile, such failure to pay a fine and costs may result in the matter being referred to the juvenile justice system for appropriate disposition. Each violation of the provisions of this chapter shall constitute a separate offense.
