Loud Parties & Neighborhood Disturbances

A Tempe Police Reminder

Post Date:08/29/2014 9:24 AM
As the weather gets cooler there will be more social gatherings in our yards.  

A few tips that have helped past gatherings include:
•Be respectful of your neighbors by letting them know about your social event.  
•Be mindful of the noise your gathering is emitting and end your event at a reasonable time.   
•Make sure your guests are parked legally & courteously.
•After your event, check the street for trash.
•And finally…have fun!

A reminder - Tempe City Code TCC5-32 defines a Nuisance Party as an assembly of persons for a social activity or special occasion which constitutes a substantial disturbance (noise) of the quiet enjoyment of private or public property.  This also includes excessive traffic, obstruction of public streets by crowds or vehicles, public drunkenness, service of alcohol to minors, fights, disturbance of the peace, and litter.  Fines- 1st offense $250, 2nd offense $1,000, and 3rd offense $1,500.

To report Nuisance Parties call the Tempe Police non-emergency number 480-350-8311.  Officers will be dispatched to investigate and if warranted, issue Nuisance Party notifications.
