The Trespass Enforcement Agreement service allows property owners or persons responsible for the property and the Mt. Juliet Police Department to work together to reduce criminal activities on private property. Mt. Juliet Police officers are authorized by the property owners/managers to remove or arrest persons found on the property when they are not authorized. An individual arrested for trespassing will be charged with a violation of the Tennessee Code Annotated § 39-14-405, Criminal Trespass.
The use of a Trespass Agreement is a valuable tool for police officers because it can prevent a trespasser from bringing weapons and/or drugs on the property. Reducing crime and the presence of illegal guns, drugs, and unlawful activity in the community are goals shared by everyone in our community.
