Party Time?

We continue to see a decrease in the amount of college parties.  If there has ever been an example of how collaboration can work - this is it.  Working closely with our partners at UMD and our City Council we built ordinances and changed student conduct rules to address the issues associated with loud parties and underage consumption.  Back in the 1990’s and to the mid 2000’s officers would literally go from one loud college party to another.  Back then, some 911 calls for loud parties would entirely unanswered due to the volume.  Today, our party calls are about one fifth of what they were just 10 years ago. 
The success is due to UMD’s commitment and good ordinances passed by our City Council as well as our dedicated police officers.....
