The Collin County Sheriff's Office only registers Sex
Offender that live in the unincorporated areas or in cities of Collin
County that do not have Police Departments. All other sex offenders are
registered by the law enforcement agency where they live.
The Collin County Sheriff's Office is making available a citizen-friendly,
easy to use, sex offender registry for all of Collin County. This registry
will enable citizens to search for the presence of registered sex offenders
in proximity to their homes, places of work, schools and day-care centers.
This information is being provided to the public in a form they can easily
use any time day or night via OffenderWatch.
Citizens may enter any address of interest to them, and see a map and
listing of offenders within one mile of that address. Then, they may register
the address to be continuously monitored by their respective agencies,
which will send to them an email alerting them if an offender should register
an address within one mile of their registered address. Citizens may confidentially
register as many addresses as they like, at no cost. The purpose of the
program is to lessen the anxiety of citizens by proactively alerting them
should an offender/predator move within proximity to them.

Additionally, all Sex Offenders registered with the Sheriff's Office are
promptly forwarded to the Texas Department of Public Safety and will be
listed on their web site. Persons living in the incorporated limits of
a city in Collin County should also check with their local Police Departments
to determine if Sex Offenders live in their area.
