The Criminal Trespass Affidavit Program allows property owners or those responsible for the property and the Vidor Police Department to work together to reduce criminal activity on private property. The Vidor Police Department is authorized by the owners / managers to remove or arrest persons found on the property when they are not authorized to be there. An individual arrested for trespassing will be charged with a violation of the Texas Penal Code Sec. 30.05, Criminal Trespass or Vidor Municipal Code, Chapter 46, Criminal Trespass. The property owner / manager will be the person formally filing the criminal complaint against the violator(s).
