The Coral Springs Police Department is committed to fostering a partnership with the businesses and residential dwellings in our community as a means of ensuring public safety. We believe that the Trespass Program will ensure the ability to better address quality of life issues within the community, as well as through the judicial system when resulting arrests are made. It is by working together to make our community safer that we achieve our common goals. When an owner has identified a trespassing problem at his or her business or property, the owner or legal representative may request this service.
NOTE: This is a voluntary program. Multi-family properties, businesses and HOAs may participate, but only common areas are covered; the individual residential units are not (i.e., individuals actively invited to visit a tenant).
Section 810.09, Florida Statute provides that trespassing on property other than structures or conveyances occurs when an individual(s) has entered land which is properly posted and the individual is warned to leave the property and fails to do so.
Enrollment into the Trespass Program authorizes the Coral Springs Police Department and its officers to act as agents of owner/property management in enforcing the provisions of Florida State Substantive Law (FSS) 810.08 and 810.09. Officers of the Coral Springs Police Department are specifically authorized to make reasonable requests to leave of any persons in or on the premises at a time or in a place wherein the premises are not open to the public. Furthermore, the officers are authorized to act as agents of the owner/property management in the barring, or subsequent arrest and prosecution of any persons who refuse a reasonable request to leave given by officers. The initial barring will be for 90 days.
Enrollment into the Trespass Program requires a Trespass Program Request and notarized Trespass Enforcement Affidavit be completed and submitted to the Coral Springs Police Department, ATTN: Community Involvement Unit. The forms can be downloaded and completed, or walk-in service to the lobby of the Public Safety Building (2801 Coral Springs Drive).
The purchase and installation of signage is the responsibility of the property owner or management. A survey of the property by CSPD will be completed to determine the number of signs required and the placement of same in accordance with FSS 810.09. This is done after the submission of the Trespass Enforcement Request to the Community Involvement Unit of the Coral Springs Police Department.
