Calling the police on your loud, violent neighbors. When to call? Pros and cons of calling.
That could be dangerous so I would give it much consideration before you do so.There also could be some retaliation should you go that route.
I would personally speak to them in a nice way and ask them to keep the noise down. Calling the Police should be a very last resort as this could bring bad blood b/w you and your neighbours.
Advantages of calling the police.
The problem is rectified immediately - but it could only be for that day. They could be noisy again the next day, just to antagonise you. (Are you gonna call the police everyday?)
Disadavantages (I could do a Hub on it - Answer would be too long).
Also, if they are that noisy, leave other people to complain about it and hope it gets sorted. As Doug wrote - it could be dangerous if you call the Police.
Your call - good luck.
Are your neighbors owners or renters? If they are renters it might be more productive to call their landlord, who could in turn serve them with a notice to comply with the rental agreement or vacate. But like I said, this is only an option if they are renters and if the landlord cares.
Unfortunately, I think my neighbors own the house. It's a two family house with their buddies being the offical owners. We (my family and I) have tried speaking with them, but they don't care. They are as uncouth as you can get. They are constantly having loud parties that usually end with a drunken verbal battle up and down the street. They enjoy getting into fist fights that include slamming each other up against our fence. They have a dog that is constantly whining to go in, but all they seem to do is throw food at it and ignore it.I personally haven't had a good night's rest since they moved in because they are so loud regardless of the time of day/night. With summer coming, I am very nervous about what could happen. We are peaceful people, but we are at the end of our ropes.

I have some new neighbours, a mother and daughter, who shout at each other all day long. Hubby says he has heard slamming doors when he steps out often. I wonder if it will get to a point where we both feel we should do something, call the police or go knock on the door and find out if everything...

Why the police?why do so many people call the police instead of settling problems themselves? wouldn't it be more effective if someone messes with you, for you to settle the issue yourself? wouldn't it show the offender that they can't push you around?

Whats your opinion in calling the police?Would you call the police if someone was in danger and be called a snitch and hated for it but know the person is safe? Or would you shut your door and stay out of it?

Is it wrong to publicly correct a mother on how NOT to discipline her child in the streets?The other day, I saw a mother vehemently shake and drag her young crying child (who seemed about 3 years old) in the streets, while leaving Target. In New York, if you call the police on harsh public...
