With the arrival of summer, Island police say they are receiving more calls, including for noise complaints this past weekend.

“Call volume is certainly higher that it has been,” Edgartown police chief Bruce McNamee said Monday. “There have been a lot of noise complaints at houses, house parties with loud music, which I think is going to be a sign of the summer this year.”

One incident that began as a noise complaint, a house party with loud music and underage drinking, led to charges, Chief McNamee said.

Police in West Tisbury and Oak Bluffs issued warnings for weekend noise complaints. Both towns have bylaws prohibiting disruptive noise after 10 p.m. (West Tisbury) and 11 p.m. (Oak Bluffs). Edgartown also has a 10 p.m. noise bylaw.

Police chiefs said with bars and other social events cancelled due to the coronavirus, the complaints are not unexpected.

“We anticipated there being an uptick,” West Tisbury police chief Matt Mincone said Monday. “Not having the normal bar openings and things like that . . . people don’t really have anywhere else to go.”

Chief McNamee concurred. “People can’t spend as much time downtown as they would have in the past,” he said. “I’m inclined to think we may see more [noise complaints] coming into the summer.”

Tisbury police were occupied with alcohol-related incidents, including one for an intoxicated male dancing in the middle of Main street who had been operating a moped, police chief Mark Saloio said.

The man was placed in protective custody for public intoxication Thursday night, Chief Saloio said. Though no citations were issued, the man missed his ferry to the mainland, he said.

In Edgartown, police also issued a summons for drunken driving and destruction of property Friday.

“It came in as a disturbance call,” Chief McNamee said. “While en route to investigate the disturbance, we encountered the fleeing suspect vehicle . . . it had driven over someone’s lawn.”

Police in Aquinnah and Chilmark reported quiet weekends.
