One of the more com­mon calls for ser­vice for po­lice, re­lates to com­plaints about noise. Usu­ally from noisy par­ties. Ev­ery­one loves a party, and the Christmas pe­riod is syn­ony­mous with cel­e­bra­tions of all kinds, and Ma­reeba Po­lice want to see the com­mu­nity as a whole en­joy the fes­tive sea­son, so they are re­mind­ing peo­ple to con­sider their neigh­bours and the rest of the com­mu­nity when or­gan­is­ing and hold­ing a party. A bit of plan­ning and for-thought can pre­vent things from go­ing wrong on the day and avoid a visit from the lo­cal po­lice. A cou­ple of points to con­sider if you’re plan­ning a party is let­ting your neigh­bours know in ad­vance. Give them your con­tact de­tails so they can con­tact you di­rectly with any con­cerns on the night. Be rea­son­able with the type of party you have. For ex­am­ple, live bands and large crowds don’t mix very well in a res­i­den­tial area. Keep the party to in­vite only, so you know who is at­tend­ing. Don’t let your guests get too in­tox­i­cated. As the party or­gan­iser or the oc­cu­pier of the res­i­dence, you are ul­ti­mately re­spon­si­ble for the con­duct of the party, so plan ahead and be rea­son­able with your neigh­bours. As a neigh­bour, if you feel the noise is still too loud after speak­ing with the or­gan­iser, please con­tact Policelink on 131 444, use the Policelink mo­bile phone app or use the on­line form at www.po­­line/ . pps/reports/par­tysafe.
