Nuisance Party Enforcement
On July 17th 2022, Kalamazoo Public Safety responded to two separate nuisance party complaints. Kalamazoo Public Safety is continuing its enforcement of these violations and addressing the unsafe conditions it presents in order to improve the quality of life for city residents.
Just after midnight, KDPS received complaints about numerous people and vehicles in the 600 block of Locust St. Officers found grid-locked traffic conditions and hundreds of people about. PA announcements were given for nuisance party attendees to leave the area while traffic posts assisted with clearing vehicles from the roadway. The attendees complied with the requests of officers and left. An area resident was identified as the epicenter of the disturbance and cited for the nuisance party.
Two hours later, officers responded to the 800 block of Woodbury for gridlocked traffic conditions and large crowds out. PA announcements were given again requesting nuisance party attendees to leave. Traffic posts were again set up to assist with vehicles leaving the area. After several announcements and opportunities to leave, Public Safety Officers began enforcement actions against a small group of people who refused to leave.
Four people were arrested on charges related to nuisance parties and one vehicle was impounded for the same.
Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact Kalamazoo Public Safety at (269)488-8911 or Silent Observer at (269)343-2100 or www.kalamazoosilentobserver.com.
