TIPS:
Signs: “No Trespassing” signs posted around your property will warn against unauthorized use of your land.
Fences/Locked Gates: A fence clearly marks the boundaries of your property.
Keep gates locked when they are not in use.
Ensure fencing and/or chains that could cause potential harm are made visible for riders.
Lighting: Good lighting can serve as a deterrent and will also make your property less attractive to potential trespassers.
Security Cameras: If placed where they can be seen, security cameras will not only deter potential trespassers, but may capture helpful information if further investigation is required.

IF DAMAGE HAS OCCURRED:
• Document pertinent information including the date and time.
• Take photos of the damage, especially if you need to make immediate repairs.
• As soon as possible, call your local police non-emergency line to report damage to private property (mischief).
