Landlord leasing to unsavory, questionable tenants (E Main St.)

Starting summer (May-June) of 2012, we started noticing suspicious activity, unruly children, and a number of noise disturbances in a rental building on E Main Street (29 being the building number). We've called dispatch numerous times, and it seems when one unruly and questionable bunch of people move out, another group just as fitting moves in not too long after;an overall a public nusance to neighbors surrounding the building.
Dispatch can only do so much, and I think at this point they are probably just as worn out and annoyed with dealing with the problem as much as we are, so we were hoping to go another route. Is there any way the landlord/property owner can be held responsible for their behavior? Is there any way that the building itself can be shut down or investigated to make sure it's even up to the proper codes? We've seen many large families or multiple families in and out of there, and most of those units can't be anything bigger than a 2 bedroom or (1000 sq ft).

We knew someone that lived in one of the apts but she also complained that there was a lot going on in there that was swept under the rug. She felt like he really didnt screen a lot of the tennants he allowed to move in there and for as small as the apartments were he really didnt follow any guidelines on how many people should be living there at a time. But that is a slum-loard for you and unfortunately it isnt illegal and unless there's illegal activity or the place is condemnable there's not anything you can do about it but continue calling it in.
