Letter of Agency (LOA)

What is a Letter of Agency?

This letter allows the San Diego Police Department (SDPD) to act as the agent for the owner for purposes of enforcing laws against any person(s) found on the private property without owners consent or without lawful purpose.

Why do I need an LOA on file with the S.D.P.D. for my private property?

If you're experiencing problems with transients, or other unwanted people, hanging around/sleeping on your private property this letter allows the Police Department to remove them in your absence.

Where can I get a Letter of Agency (LOA) form?

If you're interested, fill it out and have the original copy delivered to the Clean & Safe office at 1111 Sixth Avenue, Suite 101 San Diego, CA 92101. Remember, S.D.P.D. requires an original signature on the LOA. Once filled out the Clean & Safe Program will automatically remind you every six month to update your LOA form.
