Section 14685 of the California Government Code provides that the California Highway Patrol may establish rules and regulations for the protection of state employees, properties, buildings and grounds, through the issuance of permits. Any violations of the governing statutes are misdemeanors. Permits and the rights there under may not be assigned to a third party. The CHP shall issue a permit upon receipt of a complete and proper application providing all of the criteria are met. An amended permit contract may be required when an activity or event is large, complex and/or alcoholic beverages are to be served.
The activity planned can only be conducted in the area designated in the permit without creating or causing risk of injury or illness to persons or risk of danger to property and will not impede the performance of public business. (Title 13 CCR 1855 (b,2))
Weapons are not permitted on state property except as provided by law (Penal Code Sections 171b, 171c, 171d). Hazardous materials (whether liquid, solid, or compressed gas) are not allowed on State property during any event. This includes all materials listed in Code of Federal Regulations Title 49, commencing with Part 171, Section 101.
The holder of the permit shall accept financial liability for any damages to state property by members of his or her party and further agrees to leave the area clean.
