Neighbors: BC Student Partying Unchanged Despite Police's New Party Line

The Boston Globe's City Weekly section had a story today about loud parties and policing, primarily in the areas of Brighton neighboring Boston College.

The Boston Police Department recently started a "party hotline" (617-343-5500) for residents to call instead of 911 when complaining about loud parties.

The problem: police response, or lack thereof, appears to be just as bad as before, report several area residents who have used the new phone line.
[Members of] the [Radnor] Neighborhood Association repeatedly [have] called Boston police, and notified BC police and the school's community affairs office, but the situation remains unchanged, [Karen] Marshall said.
