Know if an Offender Lives in Your Area
Citizens may search for registered sex offenders using the Texas Department of Public Safety Sex Offender site. This website lists registered offenders throughout the State of Texas. You may search by name, address, county, school, and zip code. A successful search could provide address and occupation information, a current color photo, and offense information of the offender. If you feel there is an error on a sex offender registration record, please report this to the Galveston County Sheriff's Office.

Who Must Register?
Any person with a reportable conviction occurring on or after September 1, 1970 shall have a duty to register. A person convicted for a non-Texas offense that contains elements substantially similar to an offense that requires registration in Texas shall have a duty to register. Offenders are required to register with local law enforcement in the jurisdiction where they live. Offenders living in un-incorporated areas of Galveston County are required to register, periodically verify the accuracy of their registration information and to promptly report any change in the information to the Galveston County Sheriff's Office.

An Offender who fails to comply with any registration requirement is subject to felony prosecution.
