Registered Sex Offenders
The following individuals are
registered sex offenders within the City of Bonham. Pursuant to
the requirements as set out in the Texas Sex Offender Registration Program, Art.
62 -- Code of Criminal Procedure, these
individuals have registered with the Bonham Police Department.
Effective March 10, 2014, the
City of Bonham enacted a Registered Sex Offender (RSO) Residency Ordinance
restricting RSO's from living within 1,000 ft. of a Child Safety Zone.
Registrants who were living in the City of Bonham at the time the ordinance
was passed are "grandfathered", and at such time as the grandfathered
registrant moves to a new address within the City of Bonham the ordinance
will apply at that time. The ordinance will have immediate affect on
any new registrant moving into the City of Bonham. To access a copy of
the Ordinance or RSO Residency Map, click on the links listed below.
