There are hundreds of private beaches on Cape Cod. Every summer, there are issues with trespassers on private beaches. These can be uninvited beach goers during the day looking to catch some rays, trespassing fisherman at night trying to catch some fish, or unauthorized persons hanging around the beachfront area.
Many private beaches are deeded to the high tide mark, which means that anyone below the mean high tide mark, let’s say on the low tide flats of the Cape Cod Bay side beaches for example, may not be trespassing on private beach property. This may vary from property to property depending on the deed.
Many private beaches are owned by individuals, homeowners associations, lodgings, resorts or private communities and condominium complexes. These private beaches are often visited whether purposely, or not by people that are not authorized to be in the area.
Security for private beaches is very important since the owners of the property can be both liable and responsible for anything that happens within the private beach property boundaries. The property owners can be held criminally and civilly liable for any illegal and wrongful actions that trespassers commit on private beach property.
Private beaches are meant to be enjoyed by those that own them. Security patrols can ensure that no other individuals have the opportunity to break trespassing laws and potentially cause liability to the owners of the property.
Periodic security patrols will make sure your private beach is an unattractive beach for trespassing on.
Private Beach Security Guard or Security Patrols?
While hiring a full time onsite security guard to stand watch at a private beach Is fairly expensive, periodic roving security patrols offer a lower cost security option for private beaches.
Private security patrols can patrol private beach areas day, or night.
Periodic, randomly timed roving vehicle and foot patrols can make sure that there is no one illegally parked in the area trying to access private beach property and that only persons that have been granted access, or have deeded access are on the beach property.
Our private beach patrol services can also perform random spot checks of private beaches to discourage trespassing, illegal bonfires, use of fireworks, partying, littering, illegal drug use and other associated problems.
