GUIDELINES FOR LETTERS OF AGENCY
Dear Business or Residential Property Owner:
The current Letter of Agency Program is being revised to assist in the prosecution of trespassers.
In the future, your property must adhere to the following guidelines:
Business Property Owners:
1. An updated Letter of Agency must be signed and on file at the Sheriff’s Station. It must
be renewed once a year.
2. Your property must be posted with a sign prohibiting trespassing. The sign must include
the hours your business is closed.
3. During regular business hours, you may be requested to sign a private person’s arrest
form to arrest a trespasser on your property.
Residential Property Owners:
1. An updated Letter of Agency must be signed and on file at the Sheriff’s Station. It must
be renewed once a year.
2. Your residential property must be posted with a sign prohibiting trespassing except for
owners, tenants or their invited guests.
In addition to these requirements, you may also be required to appear in court if a person is
arrested on your property for trespassing.
If your property already meets these requirements, or when you have made the required changes,
please complete the attached Letter of Agency. You may return it to the Sheriff’s Station by
email, fax, mail, or in person.
If you have any questions regarding the requirements of the new Letter of Agency, please contact
the Malibu/Lost Hills Sheriff’s Station at (818) 878-1808 and ask for the Watch Deputy.
Thank you for your cooperation with this program.
