In accordance with Penal Code section 602(o), I authorize any peace officer of the Santa Monica Police Department to request any unauthorized person to leave the property at any time the property is not open to the general public, and to arrest any person who refuses or fails to do so. This authorization does not apply to persons engaged in lawful labor union activities or who are on the premises at the request of a resident or management. I understand that this authorization is in effect during my absence from the premises. If I am present when the trespass occurs it is my responsibility to notify the Santa Monica Police Department

I, or my agent, will cooperate in the prosecution of anyone arrested for these offenses. I understand that this letter is valid for a maximum period of 180 days and I must renew the letter at the appropriate time if the need still exists.
