Hoke County Commission Chairman James Leach said he planned to sign a resolution Tuesday afternoon ending the county-wide curfew. City leaders ended Raeford’s curfew Monday.
Local leaders put the curfew into effect Sunday, May 31 in the wake of “civil unrest” in neighboring Cumberland County. After two peaceful protests and the conclusion of the George Floyd memorial held Saturday in Hoke County, the curfew had served its purpose of helping keep people safe, Leach said.
