Mike DiGiovanni met with the manager of the Dollar Tree in Islamorada, Jarvin
Perez and convinced him to join the Sheriff’s Office Trespass program.
a special sign (as seen in the picture) on a commercial property grants the
Sheriff’s Office permission to issue a trespass warning to anyone a deputy
finds there who doesn’t belong. This saves the property owner from having to
respond and issue a warning him or herself.
warning is issued, if the trespasser is found there again, he or she can be
arrested for trespass after warning.
Anyone interested in this program can
contact any Sheriff’s Office substation and ask about it. It is a terrific
crime prevention tool.
