RE: Public Information Request for Sex offender statistics (PIR # 17-7591)

The Department received your above-referenced request on October 12, 2017.

1. The Registry cannot determine the number of “registered sex offenders who have committed a
new sexual offense.” The Registry needs clarification on the request. The Registry can provide the
number of offenses in the Registry with a disposition date after 1/1/2000.
2. The attached excel spreadsheet is responsive from the CCH database.
3. The Registry cannot determine the number of “registered sex offenders committing a new sexual
offense against a child”. Similar to number 1 above, the Registry seeks clarification. The Registry
can provide the number of the specified offense in the Registry with a disposition date after
1/1/2000.
4. The Registry doesn’t collect anything about cities that adopt registry restrictions.

If you have any questions regarding this request, please submit them in writing via facsimile to
(512) 424-5716, via email to OGC.Webmaster@dps.texas.gov, via mail to the address in the
letterhead, or in person at our offices at 5805 N. Lamar Blvd. in Austin. Thank you.

Cordially,
