Students self-police their own parties
CU students are offered a chance to self-police their parties starting Friday, April 18th lasting until May 8th. It is a pilot program where students can register their parties at the off-campus student services leaving their contact information with the host. If there is a noise complaint the police will call the host and give them 20 minutes to break-up the party before they arrive at the scene.
This has been done by the CU Greek society for years. The system has shown a reduction in complaints and citations, and gives students a chance to take care of their own noise complaints before the police step in.
Some students are worried the police will use the information to target parties. Boulder Police Comdr. Curt Johnson, who oversees the enforcement on the Hill, said that students don’t need to worry because the goal of the program is to reduce the time spent having to respond to noise complaints.
