Inadmissible Patron Program (IPP)
The Inadmissible Patron Program (IPP) is a public safety partnership between Delta area businesses, public facilities, and the Delta Police Department.
The goal of deterring individuals known to be associated to or involved in serious and/or violent criminal activities from entering or remaining in participating establishments in the City of Delta.
An Inadmissible Patron (IP) is a person whose lifestyle, associations or activities poses a risk to public safety, either directly or from third parties. This definition reflects that it is the high risk behavior of these individuals and groups that is of chief concern. IPP relies on the authorization signed by the owner or designated representative of each participating location. This authorizes sworn members of the Delta Police Department to act on the location’s behalf to deny entry to and/or remove any persons they determine to be IPs.
