Noisy party

You can report a noisy party or unruly gathering.

What to do

During the party, call 911

  • Give the address of the party and say that your complaint is about a "noisy party."
  • You can remain anonymous, but it helps to give your name, address and phone number.
  • The noisy or unruly assembly law is enforced 24 hours a day.

See Code of Ordinances, 389.65


If the problem continues

Talk with neighbors and plan a strategy. Tactics may include:

  • Everyone calls 911 when a noisy party starts
  • Everyone calls the property owner when a party disturbs neighbors
  • Invite tenants or owner to a meeting or mediation session
  • Contact your Crime Prevention Specialist


Penalties

Violations of noisy or unruly assembly law can lead to fines of up to $1,000 and/or 90 days in jail.

Property owners can lose their rental license. See Code of Ordinances, Article XVI Rental Dwelling Licenses

For construction or other noise, see "Noise complaint"

Note
