Its summer time. The kids are outdoors walking the streets, hanging out with their best friends.
But, how well do you really know your neighbors? Does a registered sex offender live near your family?
Would you be surprised to know that Texas has more than 90,000 sex offenders and predators who were convicted of sex crimes in its statewide database?
Sex offenders are required to register their permanent address with law enforcement. The Department of Public Safety maintains a database with this information.
Parents are advised to check the registry, to help educate their family members on possible dangers in areas they live or visit.
