You Can Control Entry to Your Property!
If you are a business owner or manager, you can help eliminate criminal trespass on your property by posting the Conditions of Entry Sign in conjunction with a signed agreement with Seattle Police Department. This is an effective approach for retail businesses and commercial properties who may have uninvited people on their property when owners or managers aren't present. View the full text of the Seattle Municipal Code pertaining to Criminal Trespass.
Signs are $7.50 each when you order via PayPal, and $10 each via mail order or purchased at SNG. If you would like to purchase signs at SNG, please call ahead. Final price also includes Shipping & Handling and 9.5% WA State Sales Tax.
To properly enforce the Criminal Trespass Ordinance you must:
- notify the potential trespasser verbally or with a clearly posted sign that he/she may not be on the property.
- maintain a written agreement with your local Seattle Police Dept. precinct to allow officers to enforce the City of Seattle Criminal Trespass Code.
