Sex Offenders


The Collin County Sheriff's Office only registers Sex Offenders 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.

If you or your loved ones have received unwanted contact from a sexual offender, contact our office at 972.547.5350.

OffenderWatch - Sex Offender Database

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.
