If a Cop Responds to a Noise Complaint About Music, You Want This Guy

There was a pretty good party in Mississauga, Ontario, Saturday night. Neighbours weren’t crazy about the noise coming from a band, so they called the cops. When Constable Joel Clark turned up, he had a word with the organizers, asking them to keep it down. But he also said they could play a little longer. In fact, he even joined in.

His supervisors weren’t upset, either. First, it was only 9pm and noise by-laws hadn’t kicked in yet. Secondly, they praised him for defusing the situation in the coolest way possible. That’s what you call community outreach!
