NPS requires all members to follow our rules which are available online and in our facebook group. Rule #08 says, “Members will not be involved in any illegal activities or display unbecoming behavior that could directly or indirectly have an impact on NPS”.
Trespassing is a serious issues and can sometimes happen when there is a miscommunication between managers and owners of locations. To ensure that your team doesn’t run into trouble; I would highly recommend a “site access agreement”. This relatively simple document captures who you are working with, that they have permission to let you onto the site, and the date and time you will be there. This document should be kept on you during the investigation as well as having a copy where your team stores documents.
If you do not have a site agreement of your own, NPS has a site agreement available on our website that you can feel free to use: http://national-paranormal-society.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/06/NPS-Site-Access-Agreement.pdf
