Calm down, you don’t need to escalate this to the police. If you’ve never said anything, you need to start with the complex management. Make a complaint, and let them be the ones to handle it. I would definitely not approach the people personally, especially if you want to remain anonymous. It’s management’s job to take care of stuff like this, so utilize the channels that are already in place. Simple.

I live in an apartment complex as well and have had similar problems in the night. We ever only called the police when these kids were running behind the apartment building and throwing eggs, and one hit our window. If you have a security officer there you should definitely let him know. Does he guard your complex? We live in government apartments, they’re strict too but we don’t have that. I’ve never heard of them before, only in military housing neighborhoods. Regardless, you can let him know. I don’t know how seriously a note would be taken, but you can also speak to the manager and let him know about the kids and loud noise at night. That is totally disrespectful of them.

I see no problem notifying the police for a noise complaint. I’ve done it before. You are tired, they are being assholes. It’s not like they get cuffed and thrown into a squad car. They just talk to them. It may take them time to respond though, depending on the evening’s events.


I’d report it to management most certainly. I had neighbors like that and they were fucking HORRIBLE to live near.

You can move to another side maybe?

Keep a list yourself of all the times this happens and when you report it to management. I’m sure there is something in the lease about kids playing in the halls. I worked at several national apartment companies and there was always something in the lease about hallways and communal areas. With the music I’m also sure there is something in the lease about that too. We’ve had an issue lately with someone drumming outside at all hours of the day and night. Here they get one verbal warning, one written warning, then a final warning. After that it’s eviction. I would report it immediately to the security officer of duty then follow it up with a call to the management on Monday. Most main managers rarely work on weekends so during the week is optimal for the information to reach the person with the power.
