CSPD officers ask permission to park on private property

POLICE ACTION: I often see Colorado Springs Police trying to catch speeders while they are sitting on private property. Have the property owners given the Colorado Springs Police written permission to conduct city business on their property? I think that these officers are trespassing on private property.

ANSWER:Officers, for the most part, park on public property, according to CSPD spokesman Lt. Rafael Cintron. When they park on private property, “we touch base with the business for approval. We do ask permission.” If a business owner says no, “we won’t park there,” Cintron said
