The Police at Kibiri have carried out an operation on bars who play loud music in Busabala, and arrested seven people from two bars.
This follows the public outcry and the directive by the Deputy Inspector General of Police for the territorial Police to work hand in hand with Environment Police to curb down Noise Pollution.
The suspects are currently detained at Katwe Police station on allegations of Noise pollution.
Before their arrest, the police and community had for several times made complaints and warning towards the noise coming out of their establishment.
“The Police would like to inform members of the public to always be mindful of their neighbors and only use the required decibels in a residential area,” ASP Luke Owoyesigyire notes.
According to the Environmental Management and Coordination (Noise and excessive vibration pollution) Regulations (2009), any person in charge of a party or other social event which occurs on any private or public property shall ensure that the party or event does not produce noise in a loud, annoying or offensive manner such that noise from the party interferes with the comfort, repose, health or safety of the public within any building or outside of a building or recklessly creates the risk thereof at a distance of 30 meters or more from the source of such a sound.
