The VPD Investigations Division has procedures to ensure the proper registration of all persons required to register as a sex offender who are living within the City of Victoria and to ensure compliance with Chapter 62 of the Code of Criminal Procedure.
The sex offender registration or verification process is conducted at the VPD on dates and times posted by the Investigations Division. Currently that is only on Tuesdays 12:00 noon to 2:00 p.m. and Thursdays 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon or by appointment by calling 361-485-3730. No Exceptions.
The registering detective will determine if the sex offender is a new registered sex offender; verifying their information periodically; or reporting their change of status. The detective will then follow the appropriate procedure.
Regardless if the person is at the VPD to register, verify or change status – the registering detective shall always require a photo ID and proof of address from the sex offender. The photo ID must show the current address or show proof from DPS that their current address has been changed.
The Department of Public Safety has created searches for Texas Public Sex Offender Registry. These searches allow the public to search the registry for sex offenders registered in Texas.
Instead of calling 911, feel free to contact our non-emergency line at 361-573-3221 and the Call Takers will determine if it is appropriate for an officer to respond or return your call. They may also be able to help you or refer you to the right place.

For other documents and information, a Public Information Request form may be needed.

Neighborhood Watch is much more than adding and using good locks. It is more of a state of mind or a level of awareness, because you are the extra eyes and ears to detect crime in your neighborhood. Criminals are always interested in where the police are. In a good Neighborhood Watch, criminals will also be leery of the homeowners because they know the homeowners are watchful and will be prepared to act by reporting to the police and their neighbors.Our Crime Prevention Unit can let you know if there is already an established Neighborhood Watch in your area. If not, you can volunteer to be a Block Captain or Neighborhood Watch Coordinator.For more information on Neighborhood Watch - contact 361-485-3808 or email by clicking this link.
Since 1994 the Victoria Police Department has afforded its citizens an opportunity to experience our department in a fun and unique way. Through the Civilian Academy, citizens are exposed to many facets of law enforcement that have never been offered to citizens before.

What is a Home Security Survey?
A Home Security Survey is an inspection of your home. The inspection will cover items such as type of lighting, doors, locks, and windows.
Why should I have a Security Survey done?
For more information on Home Security Surveys - contact 361-485-3808 or email by clicking this link.
You will learn what areas of your home need security improvements and how to make those improvements. Also the inspection may qualify you for a reduction in your home owner’s insurance premiums.
Every vehicle is equipped with a Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) plate on the dash board. These plates can and are being replaced with a new, fake plate by thieves. By etching all the windows on a vehicle with the VIN the thief then has to replace and dispose of marked glass. Disposing of over 100 lbs. of marked glass is a thief’s worst nightmare! The thief sees the etching and then moves to an easier vehicle.
Four reasons to etch your windows:
1) The professional thief is on the lookout for alarms and VIN Etching. If he notices that your vehicle has been etched, he may well move on to another easier target. This is a good reason to also display window warning decals.
2) If the thief plans to resell your car after attempting to change the VIN, now he must replace all the glass at a cost of thousands of dollars. His profit is up in smoke!
3) If the thief runs a "chop shop" operation, dismantling stolen cars for the parts, now he runs the risk of having all these VIN's from stolen cars laying around his shop in complete doors and even amidst broken glass in the corner.
4) When the stolen car is recovered by the police, an etched VIN may be the only solid link to the original vehicle owner.
Etching may also increase the resale value of your vehicle. In some instances, VIN Etching will entitle you to a reduction on your insurance (check with your insurance agent).For more information on VIN Etching - contact 361-485-3808 or email by clicking this link.

Can you tell me if a certain area is a “safe” place to live? How can I get information on Criminal Activity?
We are not allowed to give that opinion. You may request the crime activity in that area by filling out an Open Records Request or go viewing our Crime Map by clicking the image below.

Reports of criminal activity taken by VPD Police Officers are assigned to a follow-up investigator. If the offender is determined, but the person has not yet been arrested, then the investigator is responsible to work up the case, gathering witness statements and other evidence. This may take some time but once a thorough investigation is complete, the investigator sends a case packet to the Prosecutor’s Office for review. The Prosecutor then determines if a case should be accepted and recommends to a judge that a warrant be issued.
Yes, the crime must have happened in our jurisdiction which is within the Victoria city limits. If it happened outside the city in Victoria County, then you would need to contact the Victoria County Sheriff’s Office. If the incident occurred elsewhere, contact the law enforcement agency for that jurisdiction.
The owner or someone with apparent authority to act for the owner gives someone either oral or written communication that entry onto the property is forbidden (this can be residential or a business).
Normally, VPD Officers will assist in this “notice” by using a VPD Criminal Trespass Warning form to be filled out during the officer’s investigation and the residents, property owners or business persons who have trespassers at their residence, property, apartment complex, business property, etc., will sign the form. The officer will then request the person to whom the warning is directed to sign the form acknowledging that they may not return to that specific location for a certain time frame (generally no more than a year).
If the person returns, that person may be subject to arrest or the officer may work up a criminal case on the individual and request that charges be filed through the local Prosecutor’s Office.
FYI – Section 30.05 of the Texas Penal Code states in part:
Texas Penal Code § 30.05. CRIMINAL TRESPASS. (a) A person commits an offense if he enters or remains on or in property, including an aircraft or other vehicle, of another without effective consent or he enters or remains in a building of another without effective consent and he:
(1) had notice that the entry was forbidden; or
(2 received notice to depart but failed to do so.
For that entire law click here: http://www.statutes.legis.state.tx.us/Docs/PE/htm/PE.30.htm#30.05
The offense of Harassment is defined by the Texas Penal Code, with that law found by clicking here.
In order to prove that a person committed an offense the investigator must prove the elements of the offense. This is often difficult without evidence.
A mail in Harassment Packet may be found by clicking here on the VPD Documents and Forms webpage. Instructions are in the packet and the entire packet must be completed before the VPD will investigate the alleged offense. The VPD investigator is then responsible to work up the case by gathering any other evidence necessary. This may take some time, but once a thorough investigation is complete, the investigator sends a case packet to the Prosecutor’s Office for review. The Prosecutor then determines if a case should be accepted and recommends to a judge that a warrant be issued.

How often does someone say “Oh no, I’ve been robbed!” When the facts of the case are known, a “Robbery” may not have actually occurred but a Theft or other crime instead.
Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) in the US has been around for a long time and is administered by the FBI. The Victoria Police Department and thousands of other law enforcement agencies report crime data to the FBI via the National Incident Based Reporting System (NIBRIS) using their definitions shown here:
Robbery – The taking or attempting to take anything of value from the care, custody, or control of a person or persons by force or threat of force or violence and/or by putting the victim in fear. Note – this is considered a violent crime against another person. It is often a violent type of theft in that it is committed in the presence of a victim(s), and in which the victim fears for their safety. Example: A store employee is forced at gunpoint, or knifepoint, to hand over the money
Burglary (breaking or entering) – The unlawful entry of a structure to commit a felony or a theft. Attempted forcible entry is included. Note: Usually, a victim is not present during the commission of a burglary. Example: A person comes home from work to discover an open door/window and personal items such as jewelry and electronics missing.
Theft – The unlawful taking, carrying, leading, or riding away of property from the possession or constructive possession of another. Examples are thefts of bicycles, motor vehicle parts and accessories, shoplifting, pocket-picking, or the stealing of any property or article that is not taken by force and violence or by fraud. Attempted thefts are included. Embezzlement, confidence games, forgery, check fraud, etc., are excluded. (Note: These would be other criminal acts).
