Swamp Rentals FAQs

Is there really such a thing as the “Party Patrol”?

Yep. In an effort to keep Gainesville residents safe in their apartment communities, the Gainesville Police Department launched the “Party Patrol” about ten years ago. Their whole mission is to cruise around UF’s off campus apartments and make sure that parties are not getting out of control. If you ever meet the officers of Gainesville’s Party Patrol, our suggestion is that you be as respectful as possible. They’re not here to make your apartment renting experience miserable, they just want to make sure that you’re safe. If you treat them with respect, they’ll return the favor. If you give them attitude, they’ll start to look for an excuse to drag you out of your apartment and straight to jail. (3/30/10)
