Answer

A sex offender registers with the local law enforcement authority of the municipality (chief of police) where the offender resides. If the offender does not reside in a municipality, the offender registers with the local law enforcement authority of the county (sheriff) where the offender resides. Registration must be completed not later than the later of the seventh day after the date the offender arrives in the municipality or county or the first date the local law enforcement authority of the municipality or county by policy allows the person to register. Once the offender registers with the local law enforcement authority of the municipality or county where the offender resides, that local law enforcement authority becomes the offender’s primary registration authority.

If a sex offender resides outside of Texas and works or attends school in Texas, the offender registers with the local law enforcement authority of the municipality or county where the offender works or attends school.
