I would recommend talking to the boy directly and tell him this needs to stop or you will be contacting law enforcement tell him he is on private property, then warn the parents either in person or by mail if all else fails I guess you could speak to someone in your community about it. It does not sound like the cops need to be involved.

Yup, its called trespassing. Call them everytime.

Sure. Illegal tresspassing, loitering, and littering.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

go out and warn them that you will call the police first so you can prove that you warned them. (use a tape recorder or a cell phone or ipod, or camra that can record while you say it so they cnt say you didnt). if they stay call the police and tell them you dont want them on your property, or who's ever property.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

Yes, by all means!
From what you've said they may have committed trespassing, vandalism, littering, invasion of privacy, stalking/menacing, public nuisance, etc.
Let the cops deal with them!

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

absoloutly he is tresparcing and littering on someones property!!definatley

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

You could file a complaint.
The more complaints you file the better a chance you will get for a restraining order.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

Ultimately, you can call the police for anything. Whether or not it will do you any good is another story.

There is some difference between someone leaving their trash about and vandalizing something. If the tree/swings/whatever are on your property, then you can certainly make a complaint for trespassing, though the police are limited in what can be done in such matters, and may wind up directing you to file charges on your own.

Perhaps you might call the police and ask for an officer to call you back, and you can explain the situation and ask the officer to explain your rights in that particular situation, as they will vary in different areas. Not all, but most police agencies are only too happy to do so. This would also avoid a police visit to your house, which certainly wouldn't go unnoticed by the neighbors.

The thing that would concern me is that if the child is 'very bad' would calling the police (which I suspect would amount to little more than an officer speaking with him and advising him to stay out of others' property) help matters or hurt them? Would he be likely to be there more often or would the visit from the police be sufficient to keep him away?

I may be wrong, but from prior experience, kids like this rarely care what the police tell them and, if they aren't arrested, will continue to do as they please. Likewise, or possibly the underlying cause, their parents rarely care either. Food for thought.

That said, I wish we could go back to the days when you could go outside and decorate his behind with a well-placed footprint. I do believe that would have much more effect on him. Sigh.

The police can't do anything for you. First of all, you didn't see them or have them on camera dropping the bag of doritos or gum, so you cant call the police on your suspicion of them littering.

Second no crime has been committed.

The police have better things to do than get involved in this type of matter and it would be very bad of you to tie up their time, from protecting the public and putting away real bad guys, for time spent on this kid or kids.

Best bet is next time you see them, tell them not to climb your tree or hand out on your property.

and next time you see the parents have the adult or property owner tell the kids' parents that they aren't allowed.

For now thats all you really could do.

Good luck!

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

yess. they have no right to do that

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

YES! There's always a police number that says it is not for emergency. Perhaps you can call that one. Explain the problem very specificaly, trying to put all the best details in all the right places.

I do accept that kids have to learn these things, so I think it would be okay. You know, our world can end at any moment, because of... Guess what? Global warming!!! These naughty kids should be taught what to and what not to do!

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

It is tresspassing.. but there's not much cops can do about it. I wouldn't freak out about it. The cops would probably laugh if you called them..

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

one foot in
At the very least, if they are on your property without your permission, they are tresspassing. That makes it a police matter. If they hurt themselves on your swings (property) you will surely hear from the parents' lawyer! Call the cops. If they aren't there when you call, say so, and state that you just want to make a report. I'm sure the cops already know of the little darlings. You should be prepared for more trouble from the kids (for the short term) after talking to the police. Its astounding how few kids are raised with to respect other people's property -- or even other people!

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

yummy mummy
if he is on your property and is causing a nuisence then yes you can hun

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

Yes, Call......Do you know the number?

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

I'm pretty sure you can report it since they're vandalizing your property, just don't expect them to go to jail or anything -.-

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

Of course..trespassing is against the law and so is littering.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

hell yes call the cops maybe it will give them just enough of a scare to respect other peoples property, as well as alert their parents to their early warning signs of acting out behavior.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

Go right ahead. Its your right to do so

brittany =]
if you want to call the cops, you could. they might just tell the kids to stop. I wouldn't call 911 though, just the local line. look up your town's police department phone number.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

yes call the cops....maybe by trying to stop this young offender now, he will turn out to be a better citizen!!! GOOD LUCK

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

It never hurts to call the cops. The most they're going to do is talk to him.. there isn't much else they can do unless he is doing it all the time. Then it could be harassment or tress passing.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

call the local police department. just not 911.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

Yes, it's perfectly okay.
Why? Well, these a*holes are totally vandalizing and trespassing on private property, and that, my friend, is an offense. Both are indeed. Give the cops as much information and evidence as you can and provide the frequency that this happens.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

i know the answer
ya you can i dont think they will do anything though

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No
