    What if ,up front, the renters of all rooms were told that there would be $100 surcharge for any guest in the room beyond the four allowed. Then when 30 people are found in the room, the renters, whomever they are, are charged $2600. I would bet doing that once or twice, the word would spread and people would be less likely to rent rooms for their kids.

    Maybe it's just been my experience, but I don't really see a whole "police vs security" thing happening. Most of the the police I've spoken to have been nice, polite and respectful (the others weren't really rude, just kinda kept to themselves). Maybe it's because nowadays around here (Ottawa, Canada) most cops used to be security guards.

    In Montreal we used to work closer together. Then they brought in the Community Policing where unless there is a criminal still on the scene of most crimes the police will not come to the scene. The victim has to go to the station to file a report. This is supposed to free up police to respond to urgent calls. Wjat it is doing is screwing with statistics. For example a small business owner is not going to close his store to go to the police station to report a minor shoplifting for example. In my case we wuld invite the police to the restaurant with us when they came to the hotel to complete a report. Since the new style policing has started I rarely see a police officer.

    Our problem is we do not have lots of time to deal with the individual complaints. When the bars close at 03h00 we can get 6 or 7 complaints within 2 minutes. People complain when they hear a door slamming closed beside them at this time of day. If we spent the tiem investigating each case we would not be able to respond to the other complaints.

    We dont have that around here... and Im glad, sometimes when I just want a couple days away from home I'll check into a hotel.

    We enforce a one exit door, 4 max in a room rule. This is when the problems start. The kids rent a room & sub-rent it to 30 others. When you try to find out who actually paid for it you have 30 people saying they did. This causes even more noise complaints on the floor. As for the parents. They arrive early in the afternoon & don't tell us the room is actually for the kids. When we catch them at 3a,m. we could call their parents but it is hard to do this when you are r3ceiving a noise complaint somewhere else in the hotel every 2 or 3 minutes!!

    The best solution is as some of the high end hotels do, don't rent to locals. We're a Holiday Inn

There's a law for most any situation so I'm sure they must have one that prohibits what they are doing. The web site should plainly state no minors under 18 without an adult is permitted.

    No these were locals. We don't usually have problems with Vermonters. it's ones from Mass. that we have trouble with. During spring break we have 2 weekss back to back, one week Ontario kids & the next Boston kids!

    Sounds like the Copper was having a great night too, I'm sure an S/O and an LEO's frustrations can go both ways and clash in the middle somewhere. Gotta love the kiddies and their attitudes, especially after a few brewskies and shots to be cool .
