Registered Sex Offender Compliance
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:
