Government on my doorstep: "Google Earth shows a building in your backyard. Explain."
A person from local authorities showed at my door to ask about a building in my yard, seen on Google Earth.
He openly stated that to my wife, who answered the door.
After my wife reassured him it was a old animal shed, he was let inside the house to see for himself.
After that, he left, reassuring my wife everything was fine.

Odd, to say the least.

The images from my house on Google Earth are at least seven years old.

So they're not that quick, but still I think it's ridiculous they're using sources like that to determine if someone has build something in their own backyard.

wtf

In about seven years they will be back to ask about the other buildings I have put down in my yard.

Wow - I don't like it either. I'm just glad I don't have a 911 address and can't be "googled". Still I can find my farm and see lots of stuff not visible from the road (like my round pens and barns). Gives me the creeps.

I think so.. The police do not look at land deeds and building permits. Either cased or they are monitoring you or HAVE monitored you and OBVIOUSLY think you are suspicious in SOME manner. Never treat an on-duty cop like a friend. Be friendly but they are not friends while on duty. Get them to get a warrant.

If the cop didn't look at the shed you better be cautious.

Please take my advice and report the encounter with as many police officers as you can, and the chief. Could have been off-duty for all you know, don't fuck around, make some calls, make sure they know this person came to your house, ask questions. For me?

I don't know how they do things in the Netherlands but this should have been the response. And perhaps the police have nothing better to do but look at building permits and land deeds, but you don't need a permit to erect a free-standing shack. Maybe they think you are into drug selling, nothing to steal but a big home, don't post this if you're going to be stupid and do nothing with our comments.

It happened to my wife, with our two kids in the living-room. I wasn't at home. She wasn't that alert. Too bad.

I would've asked his socks off!

It wasn't police, but someone from the province, he said.

Why would he have to go into your house to look at a shed in the backyard? Was there no other way to get to your backyard except through your house?

People need to record stuff like this on their cell phone, like the one guy did in Tennessee - if someone comes to my door with a cock and bull story like that, better believe I'm gonna record it.
No trees were killed in the sending of this message, however a large number of electrons were terribly inconvenienced.

Yes there is a way around, but my wife couldn't let the kids alone in the house.
My wife kinda offered it to him.

Besides that, it was terrible weather so he really didn't want to get outside in the yard. Now he could view it from the scullery.
