We do have some bussinesses that have letters on file w/ the PD that request us to make arrests on their behalf if we find people on their property. I have yet to utilize one of those letters, so I don't know the legalities of it. I'm sure the city attorney has some input on the creation of those letters and our ability to act on them. Usually telling people to leave in lieu of being arrested works.
Good to know though.
