A Noise Patrol service was shut down because...It was successful, and received no more complaints?
...council officers were chased out of buildings.Wait, what?
The team, who were tasked with dealing with noisy neighbours over weekends, had run the service for more than 20 years.
But it was shut down last year over concerns on (sic) the safety of the staff.
A Brighton and Hove City Council report said: “There had been occasions when behaviour towards Noise Patrol officers has been inappropriate, including incidents where officers have been chased from a building.”
The council said it had been replaced by field officers who are “working to a 24-hour response rate” and following up complaints the next day.When there's no-one around to chase them? Outstanding tactics!
