Criminal Trespass Program

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 that you authorize is allowing the Irving Police Department to act as your agent in your absence. This is primarily used by officers 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 a violation of the Texas Penal Code Sec. 30.05, Criminal Trespass. The property owner / manager will be the person formally filing the criminal complaint against the violator(s). Program participants are required to renew their desire to participate in the program each year.

Contact Officer Carrie Edwards, program coordinator, for further information on enrolling your business property in the Criminal Trespass Program.
