    I am looking at buying a big piece of land that is distressed, and when I went to check it out there are clearly vagrants and homeless people camped out there. Saw some tents and couches etc through the woods in at least 3-4 places. On one end saw some dudes just sitting on a couch at the edge of the woods on the property. I waved at them and they just stared. Saw a tent in the woods behind them.

    I think it may be good for light industrial zoning but I want to get to walk around the property (125 acres) and I wouldn't feel safe walking around it alone even while armed.

    Would local PD (in Douglasville city limits) help me? Douglas County Sheriff? Do I have to recruit ODT mafia for money? 2-3 armed guys?
    Any ideas?

    Start installing PVC pipes, all the foot traffic after that will drive them away.

    I’d check with an attorney on how long and what it will cost to “evict” the urban outdoorsmen from the property if you purchase it. Squatters sometimes have more rights than property owners especially if there are lib judges involved. May not be worth the hassles in the future if they keep coming back. Good look.

    City cops know they're there and don't care. There are several of these around here.
