This database contains all information provided to Texas local law enforcement authorities by sex offenders required to register. State law specifically makes most information in this database freely available to the public. State law also permits local law enforcement authorities to publish some sex offenders in a newspaper, circular, or other periodical that serves the community the sex offender resides in. Level 1 and Level 2 offenders are required to submit updated photos every three years, while Level 3 offenders must submit updated photos annually. By law, only information about Level 2 and Level 3 offenders is available via this public directory. Call with the name and at least one other identifier an exact address, date of birth, driver's license number, or a social security number to learn if that individual is a registered sex offender in New York. Further, every local law enforcement authority in Texas maintains a sex offender registry that contains information on all sex offenders registered with the authority. The Sex Offender Registry now posts multiple photos of registered sex offenders, as they become available, to provide New Yorkers with additional information to keep their families safe. Please review the Sex Offender Frequently Asked Questions for more detailed information about sex offender registration in Texas. DCJS is barred by law from posting information on Level 1 low level sex offenders, or those with a pending risk level, on this public site. Public notification of registered sex offenders is accomplished in several different ways. Some local law enforcement authorities have established local websites the public can access to search for sex offenders living in their community. Finally, if a high risk sex offender or a civilly committed sexually violent predator moves into a community, the TXDPS will notify the community by mailing to each residence and business in the community a postcard containing information about the offender or predator. While DCJS cannot tell you if there are any Level 1 sex offenders or sex offenders with a pending risk level in your neighborhood or who they are, the agency can advise if a particular individual is on the registry. Additionally, Level 3 offenders and those offenders designated sexual predators must personally verify their address every 90 days with law enforcement. Registered sex offenders are required to periodically report to the local law enforcement authority to verify the accuracy of the registration information and to promptly report certain changes in the information as those changes occur. Photographs of Level 1 offenders also are provided upon request.
