“The policy is not set as a punishment rather it’s to keep everyone safe and will better allow us to gain compliance with ," said Sgt. Richard Cournoyer, of the Mansfield Resident State Trooper's Office.
Residents will be required to show their resident ID at the front entrance of the complex, and must be in the company of their guest(s) at all times, according to the new policy.
Once residents have reached their four-guest limit on any given night, they will not be allowed to enter the property with additional guests.
