Phase A – Non-Emergency Incident Response
“Disorderly Persons Run”
You are dispatched to a call of disorderly persons loitering at a privately owned apartment complex. The female caller states the suspects constantly loiter here for the purposes of drug sales/use and prostitution. She also states this is a constant problem, and the complex owner lives on-site but can’t control the problem.
When you and your back up arrive, you see several young men talking to a
female in the courtyard. They begin to separate upon seeing you. An elderly man quietly
summons you to his door and tells you the group was smoking crack and he observed one of
the men crawl through an apartment window earlier in the night. Since then, the group has
been going in and out of that apartment. The man is certain the apartment should be vacant.
Your beat partner hollers for the group to stop, which causes them to turn around and see the
man talking to you. The men stop, but the female walks into the apartment in question. The
man becomes visibly upset and fears retaliation. He tells you several longtime residents have moved away because of similar problems, and the police have done nothing about it. He then shuts the door.
