TxDPS Sex Offender Registry
Effective immediately, the Texas Public Sex Offender Registry will no longer display a registrant’s employer name, address or telephone number. This is in accordance with Senate Bill 369 passed during the 83rd Regular Legislative Session (2013). This amendment modified Article 62.005 of the Code of Criminal Procedure to make this information non-public.
Pursuant to Texas Code of Criminal Procedure Art. 62.005, the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) establishes this website as the official internet public access to the DPS sex offender registration computerized central database.

DPS cannot guarantee the records obtained through this site relate to the person about whom information is sought. Searches based on names, dates of birth, or other alphanumeric identifiers are not always accurate. The only way to positively link an individual to a specific sex offender record is though fingerprint verification. However, if you feel there is an error on a sex offender registration record, please report this to the local law enforcement agency the sex offender has verified their information with. The verification agency is listed in the sex offender registration information.
