Thing is, the POLICE have to hear it, otherwise it's a wasted call.
And if the noise is coming from a VEHICLE, get as complete a description as you can (not that this will make the noise go away permanently).
If the noise is from a house, all I've ever seen is a drive by and maybe an officer goes to the door and the music stops...sometimes.
You can't be on the phone to dispatch 24/7...people have GOT to be held responsible for their own behavior.
We have one guy in the 600 block of E. Maple Grove that randomly sets off HUGE fircrackers at night...NEVER get caught.
Another boomcar (black 2004 Crown Vic, new \"God\" plate) drives through the area sometimes SEVERAL TIMES a day...month after month...again...never gets caught.
It's called ACTIVE PATROLS...that's what keeps noise-mekers to a minimum.
Also, if you driver through Decatur thumping your stereo, you WILL get ticketed.
