UC Neighbors Form House Party Task Force
CINCINNATI (Deb Dixon) -- Residents are in an uproar living next to off campus house parties that attract hundreds of young people.
Police spent the last two weeks trying to send a message.
Residents who live around UC have been complaining about house parties for years. Complaints range from urinating and vomiting on property to noise and garbage.
Cincinnati Police are listening. For two weeks now, a house party task force has been moving from party to party, trying to leave a message behind that is a day in court. Local 12s Deb Dixon reports.
A special police task force has been attending the wild and crazy parties over the past two weeks and citing partiers, about 80 of them.
Most are UC students. Students get party information instantly through social media.
We talked to some of campus party hosts on Friday who say it's hard to control people when hundreds show up.
There is another reason for the House Party Task Force: the community's in an uproar. They are demanding action in response.
Students cited for underage drinking or having an open flask could be in trouble at UC. Since last year the student code of conduct covers off campus behavior.
As a member of the university community the probation class can only happen if police let the University know which students were cited.
