What can I do about my noisy neighbors?

A noisy neighbor may create a disturbance by having a loud television, stereo, or radio. These types of complaints are best handled by a police department because the loud noise is intermittent, occasional, or spontaneous. A loud party is also best resolved by the police officer.

What is the law regarding loud vehicle alarms?

The law regarding loud vehicle theft alarm systems is contained in the California Vehicle Code, Section 22651.5. Section 22651.5 in part states that a police officer may, upon complaint, remove a vehicle if the vehicle theft alarm system has been activated for 20 minutes upon the officer's arrival, and the alarm has not silenced within that time.

What are the regulations regarding construction-related noise?

The regulations regarding construction-related noise prohibit a person, between the hours of 9:00 p.m. and 7:00 a.m. of the following day, to perform any construction or repair work of any kind. However, there can be exceptions to this rule. For clarification, contact the Police Department at 415-453-5330.
