Susan Rocha said she has been unsuccessful each time she asked the church to turn down the volume. She’s tried picketing them on Sunday mornings and she said she even started recording decibel levels as part of her city complaint. When the NBC4 I-Team stopped by the church, we found the bells recorded at a 78, but Rocha said she’s registered levels as high as 105. "A violation of a decibel level would be .5 over the ambient sound, which is the normal sound of everyday activities," said LAPD Noise Enforcement Officer Rick Russel. According to the letter of law for Los Angeles’ noise ordinance, Divine Saviour’s bell chiming and music are in violation, but there is a catch. "Section 115.02 of the Los Angeles Municipal Code exempts churches and their bells from this law," Russel said. MORE NBCLA.com
