So in the apartment I am living in we have had some very inconsiderate people move in. I am talking full blown pool parties at 2 in the morning almost everyday of the week. My apartment complex says the police need to deal with. So who do I call? 911? That seems like major overkill. I am in zone 5.

Thanks!

Call whichever mini precinct is closest to you and they'll direct you.

Your apartment manager is just being lazy, it is their job to deal with noise complants. Do they not have a courtesy officer you can call? Does the pool not have specific hours of operation? I would just call the zone 5 precinct directly or APD non emergency number if all else fails. If your apartment management company has a corporate office, I would call them as well. That's just bad business.

Almost every apartment complex, is owned by a larger entity. Find that entity and let them know.

Through the years I've lived in various apartments, and I've had to deal with this issue several times.

I think the first line of defense is to inform the apartment manager. And you have taken this step.

Since the loud noise is most likely violating terms of the lease, I think it's the apartment manager's obligation to inform the noisy neighbors that they're violating terms of the lease. They should either talk to these folks or write a letter informing them that they're violating terms of the lease.

Then if this issue is not resolved by a letter or by verbal communication, then you may have to call the police.

You may want to talk to these noisy neighbors in person if the noise continues. But only do it in a non-confrontational manner. Talking to them in a confronational manner will only make matters worse, so avoid that.

Luckily, I never had to call the police. But the apartment manage did tell me that was the next step after all other attempts to stop the noise had failed.

Good luck!

Call the apt. manager at 2 in the morning when the ruckus starts. And keep calling her / him until it stops.

I would not do that.

The best course of action is to handle everything in a non-confrontational manner. To keep calling the manager in the early hours of the morning is confrontational.

This sorry state of affairs is already going to p**s the noisy neighbors off. And for good reason. But why tick off the apartment manager, too?

Thanks Guys, they actually fired everyone in the front office and now from 4 people in the front office we just have 1. We used to have a courtesy officer we used to chain the gate at 10pm, but I guess he moved out according to the office manager, so now it is just left open. According to her before they can take action they need some type of police report, noise complaint from the police as the office manager is not on premises at night. I really dont want to confront 5-15 people that are drinking and dont have the common courtesy in the first place to know that screaming at the top of their lungs at 2 am on a monday night isnt bothering anyone. I called the zone 5 mini precinct but unfortunately their number is disconnected so I called the zone 5 main office and they said to call 911.

I would still call the corporate office, the office manager does not need a police report to do his/her job lol.
Do not under any circumstances confront the noise makers directly. It is not a good idea period.
All else fails call 911 :/
Good luck!
