The 69th Precinct is moving to put the muffler on loud parties before they start for the summer.

Earlier this month, the precinct sent out an email message to area residents asking them to inform the precinct of chronic problem locations.

The message stressed, “By advising us in advance, we can pay special attention to those areas.Also, if you come across any flyers for house parties or backyard parties in our neighborhood, please bring them to our attention.

“Sound permits will not be issued in residential neighborhoods and amplified speakers are not authorized for parties in these areas,” the message continued. “Any information you can share with us is greatly appreciated and will help in preventing excessive parties and excessive noise, therefore lessening complaints and keeping Canarsie quiet and safe throughout the summer.”

Captain Milt Marmara, the precinct’s commanding officer, said that the effort was part of the precinct’s campaign to improve the quality of life in the neighborhood.

“We want to be proactive. Instead of addressing it as it happens, we want to address where it has happened in the past, and get a head start,” Marmara told this paper, stressing, “It’s important to Canarsie and important to us as a police department to address these issues.”

To that end, Marmara urged residents to contact the precinct to let them know about “illegal social clubs, converted garages where they are drinking, backyard or community driveway pay parties, unlicensed basement clubs, locations where they have parties every weekend.”

In addition, Marmara said, the precinct is looking to head off other problems as well. These include, “Any chronic locations where they are dumping stolen cars, any locations where you see possible chronic narcotics activity,” such as “people coming in and out, different people, different cars, at all hours of the day.”

What will the officers do with the information? “We’ll look at the locations,” Marmara said. “Whether we do enforcement, monitor or speak to the owners and tell them to keep it down”will bedetermined on a case-by-case basis, he said.
