Bad trouble with neighbor brewing..

I recently bought a house in south AA County. Unfortunately, I have a crazy neighbor. A really, bad, crazy neighbor. He is in his mid 60's. I know for a fact he has been committed to mental institutions. He was in jail for trying to kill his son. His son and all the neighbors warned me to stay away from him. He has a drug history. He had to surrender firearms (thankfully.?). He lives in this old nasty Winnebago like a crackhead or meth-head. He has told me he worked for DEA, he was a border patrol agent, ran his own power company, and generally talks pure BS when I see him. He is always going on about some lawsuit against the county, how everyone in town is racist, how the neighbor (who is a nice gentleman) has a "hangin tree" behind his house and burns crosses and all this other nonsense.. He has no running water, no septic tank .. He comes around and is a total creep. I caught him looking in my house the other day when I was out letting the chickens out (was around 7 or 7:30 AM). He claimed he was just coming to say knock on the door and say hi.

Here is the worst part. He used to own my house and was foreclosed on about 6 years ago or so. Before he was foreclosed on, he cut the property in half and kept the other half, separated by a creek that is too deep to walk across easily and way to wide to jump. The other day he sent me some screenshots of the county website saying he actually owned a portion of my side of the creek. I told him I would get back to him. According to my deed I have 12.4x acres. According to the screenshot he sent me, it says 11.xx acres. This I need to get resolved.
I have a cellular trail camera up on the end of my property, which is not pointing towards his end, I saw him on camera walking around today. This means he drove on to my property while I was at work and was walking around.

I am now looking for suggestions how to handle this situation.

I have a life. This guy does not. He is the type of guy who will sit on his side of the property and have nothing to do except stew and generally be crazy, who knows what he could or would do.

I am reaching out to a few companies to get a formal survey done. I already started to talk to my girlfriend and make sure anytime he did something or came around we texted each other about it so at least we have SOMETHING in writing.

I also may go get more trail cameras and hide them strategically.

I did NOT want to get a ring or any other WIFI connected security system (I do not trust big tech...) but I am thinking maybe I need to weigh the pros and cons and get one.

Any general advice? I do not want this situation to blow up but this dude is off his rocker crazy and maybe dangerous.

Got some big mean dogs? Sounds like a horrible situation to be in. Especially since he used to own the house.

Even a little dog that is loud can work as an effective alarm!

Post no tresspassing signs everywhere. Get some recordable video camera's outside of your home. When he tresspasses contact the police and have him tresspassed from your property. Then get a restraining order. Oh, and build a fence to keep him out. Make sure it is on your property line.
