MJPS Opens Registration for Trespass Prevention Pilot Program

The Moose Jaw Police Service is pleased to announce the launch of a trespassing prevention pilot program.

The Moose Jaw Trespass Prevention Program (MJTPP) is a public safety initiative that allows Moose Jaw Police Service officers to remove Trespass to Property Act violators from commercial properties. This trespassing prevention program is an initiative that police agencies in other jurisdictions have implemented and has proven successful.

Businesses that register for the program, will have a MJTPP decal installed by the MJPS on the front and back entrances of their building or property. This allows Officers to act as the owner/agent of the property and enforce the Trespass to Property Act. This program is not meant to replace a call-for-service during business hours.

This pilot project will run for an estimated three months in Moose Jaw’s downtown core and then will expand to the rest of the city.

Businesses and property owners interested in the MJTPP can visit the Business & Downtown Resource Page on the MJPS website to learn more about the program or to complete the online registration form. Interested applicants can also download, print, and fill out the registration form, and email it to CSS@mjpolice.ca or drop it off in person at 21 Fairford Street West.
