Sex Offenders - Registration Requirements

Registration Requirements

The State of Texas requires all offenders convicted of any of the BELOW listed offenses to register with a local law enforcement authority where the offender intents to reside.  The law enforcement agency then verifies the registration and forwards the information to the Texas Department of Public Safety.  As long as the offender is required to register as a sex offender, the offender must report any status changes to the local law enforcement authority within seven (7) days of the change.  Failure to comply with registration, verification, or update processes are separate criminal offenses (felonies.)

The Sweeny Police Department registers sex offenders who reside inside the City of Sweeny.
