As the college year begins, police are taking new steps to curb rowdy parties hosted by University of Rhode Island students who rent houses in town. Police Chief Dean Hoxsie told the Providence Journal that the department is assigning three officers to a newly reinstated swing shift between 7 p.m. and 3 a.m. In addition, a new law forbids carrying an open container of alcohol in a public place, including the street. And an amended noise ordinance allows the town to impose a fine of $400 per leaseholder if the noise level at a gathering exceeds a certain decibel limit.
