Nuisance Abatement Code Enhancement?

Posted by admin On March 24th

Do any of your jurisdictions have Nuisance Abatement Codes that have been enhanced to include crime related issues other than the norm: Prostitution, Drugs, Gangs, & Gambling? Our Police Department is considering revisions to the City’s related code section that would allow for the following issues to also be heard before a Nuisance Abatement Board: weapons related arrests, loitering problems, alcohol related violations, fighting – assault & battery arrests, fire capacity violations, and/or repeat calls for service. The idea is to bring businesses requiring extreme levels of law enforcement resources before the Nuisance Abatement Board for Repeat violations of these additional crime related issues.

If your jurisdiction has any such language included in your Nuisance Abatement Code sections please forward to:
