Answer

The Texas Sex Offender Registration Program specifically classifies sex offender registration information as public information with a few exceptions. The only information not available to the public is a sex offender’s social security number, driver’s license number, and telephone number, any additional information required by the Texas Department of Public Safety for law enforcement purposes, information that would identify the victim of the offense, and juvenile sex offender registration information ordered nonpublic by a juvenile court.

Sex offender registration information may be obtained from the Texas Department of Public Safety at any time via the Department’s website located at https://records.txdps.state.tx.us/DPS_WEB/SorNew/index.aspx
