Noise citations

  • 1 Post By Fifi.G

Does anyone know anything about this? Can someone issue you a noise citation (if that's even the correct term) for past noise? So it doesn't have to be on the spot? And how bad is this on your record? In my case, I live in an apartment and disturbed neighbors.
Does your city/town have a website? If they do, you may be able to find some info on there, or at least a contact name/number for questions.

I am just guessing, but I would think you would have to be served with the citation while its happening, otherwise where is the proof that it actually happened? Perhaps you could get a warning after the fact, but I don't see how you can get a citation unless caught in the act.

Just my opinion.

I'm pretty sure the police have to give you the citation when you're making all the noise. They usually have to give you a warning before citing you, as well.

What exactly happened? Every situation is different.

I know that the officers here, in NC, issue it at the time as long as the complaining party is willing to go on record. That normally stops many people from actually agreeing to back a noise citation. Otherwise, you just get a verbal warning.

** I was going to add this moment ago but had to take a call**

It depends a great deal on your noise ordinance. Some officers are allowed to cite at any time, others only cite at the time, and different circumstances are included. The differences can be as simple as one city being able to cite barking dogs and the next over not being able to. It all depends on the rules and provisions provided.

Wouldn't you have to contest if cited?

But the cop came not too long after that and we were already quiet by then and getting ready for bed. I know in the past the concierge comes up at least twice and we've never had cops called. This has only happened a few times and I've lived here for 3 years.

The cop came and asked if we were being loud and I said yes but we're ready to go to bed now. She said we need to keep it down and I said okay, closed the door and that was that. I get a notice on my door yesterday from the leasing office that the cop had to be called and they will issue a citation that will be kept on file and if it happens again in 30 days I'll be evicted. I'm not worried about that because it doesn't happen often and there are no major events coming up and I'm moving out in January anyways.

I'm just concerned about my record and if this going to affect me in the future when trying to rent.
And to answer you last question, it's typically just a fine if it is your first offense. If a person fails to pay, etc... You can be charged with a misdemeanor crime. All the fines are set by your town/city/county government, just like the noise ordinance. You can also typically appeal a noise citation.

You can find your noise ordinance on line, and read the specifics.

Absolutely call back on Saturday. I believe some areas do written warnings as opposed to actual citations which *typically* accompany a fine. It could very well be more of a warning. Again, it depends on the rules. I would want to make sure no fine was included, if the word citation (issued by the APD) is used because you only have so many days to pay a fine.

And it wouldn't hurt to contact the APD or look on line as well, due to the delay.

Hope you get t straightened out!
