Protect Your Property by Filing an Annual “No Trespass Authorization Form”
In order to make sure your property is protected, the law requires you to post “No Trespassing” signage that is clearly visible AND to file a “No Trespass Authorization Form” each year with the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD).
LAPD can only arrest trespassers on your property if this form is filed.
You can access the form here and we will file it with the LAPD for you. Just complete and sign the form and submit it via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or drop off a hard copy at the Venice Beach BID office at 1320 Pacific Avenue, Venice, CA 90291. When filling out the form, VB BID properties are in the Los Angeles Police Department Pacific Division.
Be sure to keep a copy available at your own location.
