This study was undertaken to determine the implementation of curfew hours in Ilocos Norte. The study made use of a quantitative research method through a descriptive research design. Five (5) Barangay Officials and 15 Barangay residents of selected Barangays from the municipalities of Dingras, Sarrat, San Nicolas and Banna, Ilocos Norte were taken as respondents. Percentage and frequency was used to analyze the demographic profile of the respondents and weighted mean was used to determine the level of implementation and the problems encountered by Barangay officials and residents on the implementation of curfew hours. The findings of the study revealed that most of the respondents are between 26-30 with a frequency of 24 or 20.00%. Majority of the respondents are male (70.83%) and majority of them lived in the poblacion or urban areas. On level of implementation of curfew hours, the study showed that the enforcement of curfew hours is "always" implemented. However, though the results showed that it is always implemented, there are times when Barangay officials and residents encountered problem in the implementation of curfew hours, though those problems are “sometimes” or “rarely” encountered. Based on the findings, it was therefore recommended that the Barangay Officials as the implementers of curfew hours in their respective area of responsibility should maximize the use of social media platforms like Facebook. This social technological platform would serve as a great help for the publication of curfew hours and its consequences to increase the awareness of the residents. In addition, Barangay Officials should develop a scheduling scheme to conduct patrol prior and during the implementation of curfew hours. Furthermore, the strict implementation and giving of teeth to the law should also be observed. SK Officials should also develop programs for the students to refrain them from violating curfew hours because of academic requirements. Lastly, the Barangay Officials should adapt the proposed action plan of this study as their basis to enhance the implementation of curfew hours.
