Boston Police Department "Party Line" Up and Running

The Boston Police Department just announced that they have their new "party line" up and running. A single number, 617-343-5500, is now used city-wide to complain about loud and/or after-hours parties.

Here's what they want to know when you call about a current party:
  1. address
  2. whether the party is inside or outside
  3. the floor or apartment number
  4. whether the Boston Police would be able to gain entry to the building
  5. the amount of time the party has been going on
Since 20% of the city's students live in Allston-Brighton, I can imagine our neighborhood will be among the most active users of the number.
