Criminal Trespass Affidavit Program

IMPORTANT: Activate Your Property's Protection with the Criminal Trespass Affidavit Program

The Criminal Trespass Affidavit Program allows property owners or persons responsible for the property and the Dallas Police Department, along with Midtown Improvement District (MID) and the Midtown Blues Security Team to work together to help reduce criminal activities on private property.

The Dallas Police Department is authorized by the property owners / managers to remove or arrest persons found on the property when they are not authorized. The MID and the MID Midtown Blues security team will have access to a database of the CTAS on file to enforce the warning and make sure it's up to date.

An individual arrested for trespassing will 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).

To initiate the program, you, as the property owner or property owner’s agent, must complete these steps:
