The Criminal Trespass Program allows business properties and the Irving Police Department to work together to reduce criminal activity arising from individuals criminally trespassing on their properties. The Criminal Trespass Affidavit you authorize allows the Irving Police Department to act as your agent in your absence. Officers primarily use this out in the field while the business is closed and you have an individual(s) trespassing on your property. An individual contacted for trespassing may be charged with violating the Texas Penal Code Sec. 30.05, Criminal Trespass. The property owner/manager will formally file a criminal complaint against the violator(s). Program participants must renew their desire to participate in the program each year.
Contact Officer Jason Neal, program coordinator, for further information on enrolling your business property in the Criminal Trespass Program.
