In 1991, the Texas Legislature established the Sexual Offender Registration Program. Any person convicted of certain specified Penal Code offenses must register with the local law enforcement authority in any municipality where the person resides or intends to reside for more than seven days or, if the person does not reside or intend to reside in a municipality, in any county where the person resides or intends to reside for more than seven days. The person shall register no later than the seventh day after the person's arrival in the municipality or county.
The Sex Offender Registration Investigator is responsible for collecting, distributing and storing all of the information relating to the registered sexual offender. The Investigator will maintain and update the electronic Sex Offender Notebook with a photograph and identification information of each registered sexual offender, forward all initial and updated Sex Offender registration information to the Texas Department of Public Safety.
The Sex Offender Registration Investigator shall be responsible for public notification, to include school notifications and public release of registered sex offender information and routinely conduct a computer check on registered Sex Offenders and forward warrant information to the patrol officers.
Offenders registering with the Tyler Police Department will be directed to the Sex Offender Registration Investigator for registration.
Hours of registration will be Monday-Friday, from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., at Tyler Police Department, 711 W. Ferguson St. Tyler, Texas 75701 or at Faulkner Park Police Station, 574 W. Cumberland Rd. Tyler, Texas 75703. Registration will not be conducted on City Holidays.
