September 2, 2021
The City of Kingston has reportedly implemented its University District safety initiative to limit street parties as Queen’s University students move back to the city. The initiative allows law enforcement officials to lay nuisance, party, and noise bylaw infractions for large gatherings in the downtown core until September 19. Police and bylaw officers in Kingston were called to deal “with multiple noise complaints and large gatherings blocking roadways” over the weekend. Officers issued several fines and tickets for parties within the University District as well as four administrative monetary penalties. Global News (1) | Global News (2) (ON)
