You can call the Police Department for assistance, but before you call the Police, you should decide whether the noise is at a level that your peace is being disturbed. If it is, then you should decide whether you would be willing to press formal charges in order to get the noise to stop or be turned down to a tolerable level. Officers will do their best to quiet the party, but please note the officer has no way of ordering the party host to turn down the music or issue a citation unless you are willing to press charges. The officer may try to quiet the party by enforcing other laws that he/she observes at the party such as, drinking in public, curfew, etc.
If you decide to call the police, use the non-emergency number, (408) 779-2101. Do not call 911. In addition to getting your name, address, and telephone number, the Dispatcher will ask you if you are willing to press charges or if you are willing to speak with an officer directly. We recommend that you provide the Dispatcher with your name, address, and telephone number even if you do not want to press charges or be contacted. It will help us if other calls are received about the same party. We will keep your information confidential.

Chapter 8.28.40 states the operation of any instrument, phonograph, machine or device between the hours of 11:00 pm. and 7:00 am. in such manner as to be plainly audible at a distance of fifty feet from the building, structure or vehicle in which such device is located which shall be prima facie evidence of a violation of the provisions of this section.
