The Guelph Police Service will be deploying additional resources on Saturday.

The University of Guelph will host its annual homecoming football game, which has traditionally led to increased crowds both on and off campus.

We would like to encourage everyone in the City of Guelph to act as responsible citizens and to be respectful of the community. An increased police presence will be deployed to ensure those celebrating are able to do so safely.

The City of Guelph’s Nuisance Party Bylaw addresses parties that are or could become a public nuisance due to unreasonable noise, loud music, shouting, littering, damage or destruction or property, public drunkenness or disorderly conduct or several other factors. The bylaw makes it illegal to host, attend, permit, continue or refuse to leave a nuisance.

The provincial Liquor Licence and Control Act makes it an offence to be intoxicated in a public place or in common areas of residences with persons occupying more than one dwelling, such as an apartment building.

Please contact the Guelph Police Service at 519-824-1212, ext. 0, with any reports of nuisance parties, noise complaints, open alcohol or any other ongoing issues requiring police assistance.

The Guelph Police Service is dedicated to ensuring the safety and enjoyment of all community members.
