If you are an owner or operator of a business or commercial property and have concerns regarding issues of unwanted persons or criminal activity on your property, there are resources available to help you address these issues successfully. 

 


 

In addition, many nuisance or criminal activities can be prevented by businesses and property owners taking a proactive approach to protecting private properties. Here are a few steps that businesses and property owners can take:

  • Post signs on your property such as “No Trespassing” (CA Penal Code Section 553 provides guidance on sign requirements).
  • Sign and send a “No Tresspassing” letter (602 PC) to the Huntington Beach Police Department.
  • Secure trash enclosures
  • Remove empty cardboard boxes so they are publicly accessible
  • Reduce foliage that may be used as hiding spots for people/property
  • Ensure adequate lighting
  • Increase presence or implement private security measures
  • Do not feed or give money to non-patrons
