The district of Prague 1 is aiming to hire a private security firm to help enforce ‘quiet time’ during the night, councilor Ivan Solil has said. Current restrictions or limits had not helped in the busy city centre; Mr Solil said he planned to propose a bylaw affecting opening hours of restaurants and bars. The move comes after locals complained repeatedly of disturbances in the late or early hours. The idea of quelling disturbances by hiring local security has so far drawn heated debate; if a firm is hired, its guards would reportedly operate in trouble areas between midnight and 4 AM, contacting the police if need be.
