Sex online no registration
Further, every local law enforcement authority in Texas maintains a sex offender registry that contains information on all sex offenders registered with the authority.
Like the information in the TXDPS database, state law makes most registration information contained in local registries available to the public.
Some local law enforcement authorities have established local websites the public can access to search for sex offenders living in their community.
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.
Ashoka Mukpo, US Program Associate, and US Program interns Anjali Balasingham, Andrea Barrow, Madeline Gressel, and Kari White provided important research assistance.

Registration involves the sex offender providing the local law enforcement authority with information that includes, but is not limited to, the sex offender's name and address, a color photograph, and the offense the offender was convicted of or adjudicated for.
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.
A sex offender who fails to comply with any registration requirement is subject to felony prosecution.
Public notification of registered sex offenders is accomplished in several different ways.
