Bothered by Noise? Learn Your Rights at Police Noise Forum on Thursday

Does your neighbor's yappy dog drive you crazy at all hours of the night? Does the bar down the block shut down at 3am, with drunks yelling and fighting under your window? Does the drummer in the upstairs apartment only bang louder when you complain?

Then come to a Metropolitan Police Department forum on "Noise in the Community" held this Thursday, August 4 at 7pm at the First District Police Headquarters, 101 M Street, SW.

In addition to the police, participants in the forum will include representatives from DC's Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration (ABRA) and the DC Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs (DCRA).  One topic of discussion will be areas of high concentrations of liquor-licensed bars and restaurants that are open late at night. The H Street corridor and Barracks Row will be discussed in particular.

Here's the description from the police announcement about this public event:  
ABRA, DCRA and MPD will come together to address the concerns and issues involved with noise within the community. This is an attempt to develop a better understanding of the noise issues, and to educate on enforcement actions available. While this forum is open to all, we highly encourage the ABC establishments and businesses alike that are open after 10:00 p.m. to attend this meeting.
For more information contact Lieutenant Christopher Micciche at 202-270-9655 or email christopher.micciche@dc.gov.
