2  Background  Crime Statistics  NRO/NET  Abatement Strategies

6  Neighborhood Nuisance Crimes: ◦ Burglary (Home, Auto, Sheds/Out Buildings) ◦ Criminal Mischief (Graffiti) ◦ Curfew Violations ◦ Drug Offenses ◦ Gang Activity ◦ Theft ◦ Robbery (Individual) ◦ Parking Violations (Facing Wrong Way, In Front of a Neighbor’s House, Blocking Sidewalk, In Front Yard)

7 Loud Noise  Ordinance amended and passed by Council on February 1, 2010  Amendments include: ◦ Defines ‘clearly audible’ while re-defining ‘daytime’ and ‘nighttime’ hours. ◦ Clearly audible shall mean sound that can be heard without the assistance of any device. ◦ Daytime redefined to 9:00 am on Saturday and Sunday while extending hours on Friday and Saturday evening to 11:00 pm. A similar change to the definition of nighttime mirrors the definition change in daytime hours. ◦ Sections are reorganized to facilitate easier understanding of the ordinance and includes that violations of the article are indisputable; it also introduces the “reasonable and prudent” adult person standard for offensive acts along with creating a 100 foot distance from the noise source. ◦ Exempts city-operated or city sponsored events and athletic events conducted by LISD while authorizing council to grant variances to any noise restriction set forth in the article. ◦ Note: Loud or Barking Dogs are covered under a separate ordinance and are not governed by this ordinance.  Disorderly Conduct, Texas Penal Code (makes unreasonable noise in a public place or in or near a private residence that he has no right to occupy) ◦ Presumed unreasonable if noise exceeds 85 decibels after being warned by a magistrate or peace officer.

42  Available Intervention Strategies ◦ Traditional Law Enforcement  Can include creative solutions such as electronic or “eyes on” surveillance, bike/foot patrol, trash runs, etc. ◦ NRO Program ◦ “Close Patrol” for specific problems/locations ◦ Lawsuit to abate common and public nuisances, Ch.125 Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code & Texas Alcoholic Beverage Code  Particularly useful for gang abatement and can be applied to all types of property

43  Intervention Strategies – Future Consideration ◦ Project Days – concentrated effort for set time period ◦ Chronic Nuisance Ordinance  Creates an intermediary step prior to using the State’s nuisance abatement process  Typically triggers at 3 to 4 police responses to an address for an eligible offense ◦ Code Enforcement & NRO Combined (City of Irving)  Includes some cross training of staff ◦ Citizens on Patrol/Crime Watch Board Volunteers  Employ more “eyes and ears” in our neighborhoods ◦ Youth Programs  Identify “at risk” youths and involve them in after school activities (CISNT/Operation Peace of Mind)
