    Excessive noise. The city limits noise to 45 decibels in New Haven after 10pm. But some party which bordered on a riot at times peaked at 84 decibels at 10:30, and 80 decibels at 12:25. And I was a few houses away. The threats and cursewords shouted after midnight make me wonder if it is safe for my family to live here. Think of the poor guy killed while playing a computer game in his own home. I'm afraid to call the police, because then I'll be known as a snitch and it will become even more dangerous for us. But this seemed to be in the firehouse's front yard. Why didn't they do anything about it?

    Bought at the devil's gear bike shop in Summer 2010 so likely have Devil's Gear bike stickers as well

    --Thieves broke into our garage in Edgewood neighborhood & stole these two bikes. We know we are unlikely to recover these & are bummed, but we appreciate you keeping an eye out. These were the first new bikes we purchased for them & Mitch actually was the one to fit the bikes for the boys back when DG was on Chapel.... Please share widely.

    If you know where dirt bikes, quads and ATVs are garaged, report it to the New Haven Police ATV hotline at (203) 946-6098. Or, call your NHPD district manager. By reporting where these cars ATV and dirt bikes are stored, your district manager can build a case for getting a search warrant and eventually they will be able to confiscate the machines. But, first they need to build a case. They need to gather evidence.

    For example, in the Edgewood/Dwight Neighborhood it is Sgt. Steve Torquati at (203) 946-7597. In the Whalley, Edgewood, Beaver Hills (WEB) Neighborhood it is Lt. Makiem Miller at (203) 589-3318 or mmiller@newhavenct.net. They will investigate and can confiscate the vehicles.

    You can also contact your LCI neighborhood specialist. In Edgewood/Dwight, contact Tracy Claxton at (203) 946-2857 or TClaxton@newhavenct.net.

    Then, contact your alderman to put pressure on the city to make this issue a priority for the police. The Edgewood ward is ward 24: call Evette Hamilton at (203) 508-5426 orWard24@newhavenct.net.

    To find the NHPD district manager, LCI representative, district management team chairperson and know when your neighborhood meetings are held see:

    Here is the list of Aldermen by Ward:

    If you want IMMEDIATE action, call the non-emergency (dispatch) NHPD phone number at 203-946-6316. Tell the dispatcher that your district manager (use their name) said to call and have some patrols sent to your area. Then ask the responding officer to CALL YOU BACK. This is very important. Otherwise, you call will fall into a black hole. By asking for a call back you are ensuring that the NHPD will take action and then be held accountable to you for what action is taken.

    We need enough people to report these illegal machines, call the police, and work with their NHPD district managers. There are 100,000 of us in this city and only 100 or so of these dirt bike and ATV riders who are ruining our quality of life. We all need to raise this issue with our police and city government. With enough pressure, laws will change and policing tactics will adjust.
