To sign up on the Trespass Bar Program it must be a multi-family unit (10 units or more), commercial property, or a business. You cannot sign up property that is residential, no parcels of land, and no abandoned or condemned property. The Trespass Bar Program gives officers the authority to enforce the trespass laws in your absence.
If you wish to be signed up on the Trespass Bar Program, please call the non-emergency dispatch number (540-344-6681) and ask for an officer to respond and assess your property. The Trespass Bar Authorization Letter must be provided by and signed in front of a Roanoke Police Officer. The letter will not be valid unless an RPD officer is present at the time of signing.
