Generally, a person commits the offense of trespass if the person enters or remains unlawfully in or upon premises when such premises is not open to the public; or the person fails to leave premises that are open to the public after being lawfully directed to do so by the person in charge. For more information, contact the Sheriff's Office.
In most cases, deputies are able to resolve trespass complaints without arresting the involved subject. However, there are situations where the officer has no choice, but to cite or arrest an offender. In those instances, you will be expected to be available for any resulting court action. For any further questions, contact the Sheriff's Office.
In addition to filing the trespass letter, your property must be posted with “No Trespassing” signs. Please see the handout on sign requirements and placement (PDF). Contact the Sheriff's Office for any further questions.
