But Trent can't pinpoint why that apartment complex is constantly a trouble spot.
Some very outspoken neighbors speak their peace.
"I think the residents first should show a whole lot more dignity and respect for one another,” said neighbor Ben Wheat. “Maybe they can beef up security. That way it wouldn't be necessary for police to come out here all the time."
"They need to shut this place down,” said another neighbor, Regina Clemons. “There are always shootings, and someone getting robbed."
Some say what happens at Courtyard Place Apartments seems to leak out into surrounding neighborhoods.
"We’ve seen swat teams, AK 47’s,” said a man who works nearby. “We've seen people shooting in the courtyard. Come here ducking for cover, come here very apprehensive every day."
One man who has worked in the area for 12 years said it keeps getting worse.
"It’s an embarrassment to the city, long overdue, someone needs to put a camera on it and expose it for what it is."
Some call the complex, their home.
"Everything’s OK by me, it’s all right," said Mario Charpe, who lives in the complex.
Others call the place a nuisance, but they offer solutions to fix it up.
"Security may be necessary until they get this under control," Wheat said.
"Maybe more security,” said Carter.
"Put cameras on the property," Clemons said.
Neighbors said they haven't seen a security guard on property since winter started. We contacted the office on site for comment, but they did not want to speak with us.
Many people wonder if the city can step in to solve some of the problems. City code says the number of police calls can't determine if a place is a nuisance. Many of these calls police respond to are individual calls from people on the property – the property itself isn't to blame for the problems.
The city met with police and the apartment complex a year and a half ago to discuss some of the serious issues on site. They started screening tenants at that time, but since then they have changed ownership.
A South Bend city attorney says it’s very difficult to prove if an entire complex can be declared a trouble spot – many times, the city fines properties that violate the city’s housing ordinance. When necessary they can also file a lawsuit.
