Drug Violations Considered for PROP Amendment

Friday, November 19th, 2010

Back in 2008, Raleigh City Council strengthened the PROP (Probationary Rental Occupancy Permit) by adding in a variety of criminal elements that would result in a strike against the property / landlord. Those elements included: prostitution, possession of stolen goods violations of certain state alcohol and liquor regulations, unlawful weapons, unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon, gaming violations; and, disorderly conduct.

In October, the City Council started exploring adding drug violations to the list of criminal elements of the PROP. This would further strengthen the PROP and help ensure that landlords are getting quality tenants on their property. I am uncertain at this time if the drug violations would require a conviction before (more…)

Parties and Calling 9-1-1, an RPD Perspective

Friday, September 10th, 2010

We previously posted an interview with Walt Fuller, Deputy Director of Operations for Raleigh-Wake County Emergency Communications Center about when people should dial 9-1-1 or the non emergency number concerning some of the quality of life issues that we want to improve in our  neighborhood. We also wanted to get the perspective from someone in the field that has to determine if, in fact, there is a violation, and determine whether or not to issue a citation.

We interviewed Officer A.P. Draughon III from Raleigh Police Department (RPD). He is probably one of the most knowledgeable people on the City of Raleigh’s PROP ordinance (Probationary Rental Occupancy Permit) and has years of experience as the one of the CLAMP-DOWN officers, whose sole purpose was to issue Noise and Party Ordinance (NPO) citations in the South West district.

We posed some of the same questions to Officer Draughon that we asked Walt Fuller. See his responses below, from an RPD perspective, and look for a meeting announcement about PROP education later this month. (more…)
