Trespass Arrest Authorization Letter

One way to ensure your property is protected is to post “NO TRESPASSING” signs in appropriate areas. Many property owners in Venice have learned that when someone parks and blocks their own garage door, if they do not have a proper sign stating that it is private parking with the name of the tow company… the vehicle can not be towed.

It is a good practice to make sure you have “NO TRESPASSING” signs posted on your property. Equally important, you should fill out a Trespass Arrest Authorization Letter and submit it to LAPD. You can download a letter and fill it out by clicking on this link. If anyone is to trespass on your property this will assist LAPD in filing the proper charges and making an arrest.

Homeless Services in Venice

Venice has been an attractive area for the homeless, and is considered by many to be the new “skid row”. Easy access to drugs, alcohol and panhandling along the Venice Boardwalk has contributed to a significant increase in homeless and transients in the neighborhood.

In an effort towards positive community outreach we are encouraging residents and visitors to direct the homeless to local social services agencies. Most homeless shelters have restricted hours and may require an intake screening, and for the individual to check in and be monitored towards case management to improve their living situation. Please make note of the following agencies in Venice. If you know of one that is not listed here, please add it by filling out the form at the bottom of this page.

Homeless Service Center starts by providing basic services. Here, homeless men and women can make a reservation to eat at Bread and Roses Café, do a load of laundry, take a shower and have access to phone and mail service. Through meetings with our staff, they can also be connected with emergency shelter, medical care, and mental health and substance abuse treatment. They can also receive help with transportation and advocacy to apply for government benefits.

Homeless individuals who are ready to make long-term change may enroll in case management. Service plans developed jointly by the individual and the case manager assess each person’s strengths and needs and lay out a pathway to long-term stability and increased self-sufficiency by addressing issues such as permanent housing, job training, employment and ongoing treatment.
