Trespass to Property Authorization
The Trespass to Property Authorization authorizes the Ottawa Police Service to enforce the Trespass to Property Act for your establishment. If all Elgin area businesses delegate this power to the local policing group they could exercise this power collectively and issue a single Trespass to Property Notice for every establishment on Elgin Street. This presents a longer term solution than individual Trespass Notices which can prohibit an individual from lawfully entering a single property but does not keep this undesireable individual from entering a neighbour's property. It is our hope, that with cooperation from the local policing group, we can keep anti-social, disruptive, and violent persons off of Elgin Street entirely.
