New Disorderly Conduct Law in DC

Feb 1, 2011- The new disorderly conduct law passed by the Council in
December became effective citywide at midnight. This includes the new
"Noise at Night" violation that has been mentioned in the media.
While MPD will continue to work with individuals and communities to
appropriately balance the rights of each, the new law makes it clear that a person who makes an unreasonably loud noise between10:00 p.m. and 7:00 a.m. that is likely to annoy or disturb one or more other persons in their residences is violating the law and may be subject to arrest.
