Peace Officers issue charges for trespassing at the Chestermere Water Park

keep-out-1695827_960_720

In 2018, Chestermere Peace Officers dealt with more than 20 individuals who were caught trespassing in the abandoned Chestermere Water Park. The majority of the individuals were youth from the Chestermere and Calgary area.

“Not only is trespassing on this private property illegal, but entering it presents a significant safety risk,” says Peace Officer Shawn Press. “There are multiple tripping and falling hazards, extensive hidden debris, and significant environmental dangers. It is closed for a reason and no one should be entering this property.”

Press explains that while Peace Officers have generally taken a firm educational approach when dealing with trespassers, some violators were detained and charged for trespassing and/or vandalism.

“We have had people starting fires, setting off smoke bombs and participating in illegal activities on that property” says Chestermere Peace Officer Shawn Press. “This is not acceptable in our community and these individuals have been prosecuted.”

Under the Alberta Trespass to Premises Act and The Petty Trespass Act, entering onto private property without permission (trespassing) is an arrestable offence that can carry fines up to $5000.

Chestermere Protective Services reminds residents to respect all private property and areas with no trespassing signage.
