Administrative Guidelines for Evicting Persons Under the Influence of Alcohol or Drugs (File #195)

When a person who is to be evicted from the campground is judged by the evictor to be incapable of safely operating a motor vehicle due to the influence of drugs or alcohol, or when a person who is to be evicted from the campground advised the evictor that he/she does not feel capable of safely operating a motor vehicle due to the influence of drugs or alcohol, the person being evicted will be encouraged to make other transportation arrangements. Campground supervisor or assistant should be advised of the situation prior to eviction.

If other transportation arrangements cannot be made on the spot, the evictee will be directed to a public telephone within the campground and advised to call a friend, a taxi or whomever they choose, to obtain safe transport from the area. If this cannot be accomplished, they may be allowed to remain in the campground until 8 a.m. the following morning provided they conduct themselves in an orderly fashion. If they refuse to do this, or continue to be disorderly, a police officer or peace officer will be called. At the time the police/peace officer arrives, they will make the appropriate call on the actions needed to control the situation or individual(s).

All stages in this continuing "incident" shall be documented. Documentation should include, but not be limited to, times of all actions, persons involved, staff involvement, witnesses, and persons notified by staff and times. Note the time the police arrived and directions given by the officer(s) and time left.
