Re: Recent suspicious person report prompts quick action at schools


I guess they should have read the GC guidelines a little better: ;)

"Off-limit (Physical) Caches
By submitting a cache listing, you assure us that you have adequate
permission to hide your cache in the selected location. However, if
we see a cache description that mentions ignoring "No Trespassing"
signs (or any other obvious issues), your listing may be immediately
archived. We also assume that your cache placement complies with all
applicable laws. If an obvious legal issue is present, or is brought
to our attention, your listing may be immediately archived.

Caches may be quickly archived if we see the following (which is not
inclusive):

Caches on land managed by an agency that prohibits geocaches, such as
the U.S. National Park Service or U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
(National Wildlife Refuges)
Caches that are buried. If a shovel, trowel or other "pointy" object
is used to dig, whether in order to hide or to find the cache, then
it is not appropriate.
Caches that deface public or private property, whether a natural or
man-made object, in order to provide a hiding place, a clue or a
logging method.
Caches placed in areas which are highly sensitive to the extra
traffic that would be caused by vehicles and humans (examples may
include archaeological or historic sites).
Caches hidden in close proximity to active railroad tracks. In
general we use a distance of 150 ft (46 m) but your local area's
trespassing laws may be different. All local laws apply.
Caches near or on military installations.
Caches near, on or under public structures deemed potential or
possible targets for terrorist attacks. These may include but are not
limited to highway bridges, dams, government buildings, elementary
and secondary schools, and airports.
There may be some exceptions. If your cache fits within one of the
above areas, please explain this in a note to the reviewer. If you
are given permission to place a cache on private property, indicate
this on the cache page for the benefit of both the reviewer and
people seeking out the cache."
