Noise Complaints

Translate This Page



When complaints of excessive noise are received by DDPHE, an inspector is assigned to investigate the complaint. If the complaint is legitimate, the source of the noise (individual/company/organization) receives a verbal or written warning of the violation requiring a noise reduction to a legal level. If the source does not comply with the warning, an administrative citation or a court summons is issued. If guilty, a fine of up to $999 per incident can be levied by the court.


To File a Noise Complaint, call 3-1-1. Please read through this document before submitting a noise complaint. 

The Public Health Inspections division will respond to a complaint within 72 business hours. If immediate assistance is required, please contact the Denver Police Non-Emergency line at 720-913-2000.

*Please note, the noise complaint process is being revamped to better utilize staff time and resources. Field investigations will be determined on a case-by-case basis. However, written warnings and enforcement actions may still take place.
