NYPD No Longer Allowed To Shut Down House Parties In NYC

According to the NY Post, a new directive instated by NYPD will forbid law enforcement from entering residences unless the owner of the property grants them permission. In other words, it’s LIT.

“Members are advised that in cases where an unreasonable noise condition exists on private property and the owner/custodian of the premise refuses to cease the noise, members may return on the following day and issue summonses as appropriate,” the directive reads.

The proposal for the law came about due to the excessive lawsuits filed against the NYPD for barging into private residences without a warrant. As expected, this didn’t go over very well with the officers. They’re concerned about the possibility of criminal activity going unsupervised and the burden of uncontrollable noise bestowed upon the neighbors.

“Parties will go into early morning, which will involve more drinking and neighbors getting into fights, resulting in more shootings,” noted one law enforcement member.

They propose a decent argument, however; it’s not okay to show up and barge into someone’s home unannounced. We’ll just have to see how this plays out for the summer and until then, party on. Stay safe.

In honor of this awesome proposal, here are a few of the greatest house party scenes of all time:
