The Newark Police Department has become concerned with criminal activities taking place at off-campus housing, including, but not limited to, armed robbery and theft of personal property according to a recent press release.
The NPD advised residents against allowing guests who were not invited into their homes because they could pose a threat.
Although it is difficult for individuals to maintain order of a large crowd of people, police encourage residents to call for assistance when necessary. Circumstances include unwanted or unknown individuals inside a residence, uninvited people refusing to leave or crowds of unmanageable size. According to the NPD, a party host who requests police assistance in these instances will not face the same enforcement action taken when a complaint is called in from an independent caller.
