This week's questions from Campbell Patch readers were answered by Campbell Police Captain Charley Adams.
Q: I have a neighbor who blasts his music and he has been asked to turn it down, which he does for about 20 minutes and up it goes again. I don't like to call the police department on a matter like this as I know you have more important things to look into but neighbors and I are at our wits end!! It's affecting our quality of life.
The Police Department routinely responds on calls of loud and unreasonable noise that is causing a disturbance. Although we appreciate your understanding that we must prioritize calls, if the music is creating an issue then we want to be called so we can help with a solution.
The best thing to do is to call when it is occurring so we can dispatch an officer who can talk with the responsible party. It is rare that we have to take enforcement action on these calls, but there are laws in place if this becomes necessary. Usually, a warning is sufficient.
