If you need to report trespassers that are on your property, call the non-emergency number at 480-644-2211, and select option 2 from the main menu.

The Trespass Enforcement Program was created specifically for businesses to help with incidents of trespassing and loitering during non-business hours.

If you are having trespassers on your property, complete the Trespass Enforcement Request form (link below) and contact your crime prevention officer to help you address any issues.

Registering your property with the Mesa Police Department Trespass Enforcement program allows officers to trespass an individual from your property, who does not have a legitimate reason to be there when the business is closed, without contacting the business owner or property manager first.

"No Trespassing" signs, with the ARS code printed on them, must be posted in highly visible locations on the property. You should be able to purchase signs, with the ARS code on them, at any sign shop.

The Trespass Warning Log (PDF) is for the business owner/property manager to use and keep on-site. Please do not send these to the police department.

Multi-family properties and HOAs may participate, but they must have a common area (pool, basketball court, clubhouse, etc.) or retention basin/park that is for use by the residents. Only those areas are covered; the individual residential units are not.

Single family homes may participate in this program, but they MUST be vacant and that status must be conveyed on the form as "vacant residence" in the 'business/property name' field. Once the home is occupied, the request form becomes void.
