Does the Police Department register Sex Offenders? If so, when?

The Victoria Police Department (VPD) Investigations Division has procedures to ensure the proper registration of all persons required to register as a sex offender who are living within the City of Victoria and to ensure compliance with Chapter 62 of the Code of Criminal Procedure.

Using the Registration

The sex offender registration or verification process is conducted at the VPD on dates and times posted by the Investigations Division. Currently that is only on Tuesdays noon to 2 pm and Thursdays 10 am to noon or by appointment by calling 361-485-3730. No Exceptions. The registering detective will determine if the sex offender is a new registered sex offender; verifying their information periodically; or reporting their change of status. The detective will then follow the appropriate procedure.

Regardless if the person is at the VPD to register, verify or change status - the registering detective shall always require a photo ID and proof of address from the sex offender. The photo ID must show the current address or show proof from Department of Public Services that their current address has been changed.

Registration Searches

The Department of Public Safety has created searches for Texas Public Sex Offender Registry. These searches allow the public to search the registry for sex offenders registered in Texas.
