do not trespass! it's against the law!
Please do not trespass! First of all, it's against the law. Secondly, it does those of us doing this right no good. Before entering a property, contact the owner and ask politely and professionally if you can have permission to conduct an investigation on their property. If told no, do not enter the property anyways! You will be arrested. And again, by people doing this, it makes it impossible for legitimate teams who obey the law and the requests of property owners to gain access because of bad decisions and illegal acts by more than just a few. SSPS does not condone these illegal and disrespectful acts. IF YOU DO NOT HAVE PERMISSION, DO NOT ENTER!
