Would you say something if...

a neighbor child is walking around the neighborhood drunk and smoking? This girl is 14 years old and I am pretty sure she is getting the booze from her parents and I know she gets the cigarettes for the parents. This has happened on a few occassions. Would you call the police if you saw this going on?
