Danielle,
To see if there are registered sex offenders in the area it looks like you can visit dallaspolice.net (I did a google search). Remember, that only counts for sex offenders that have been caught, tried, and found guilty of the charge. In any neighborhood, anywhere in the nation, there can be sex offenders or drug dealers or criminals of another sort who have not yet been caught. If you are looking to find a "safe" neighborhood I would recommend visting the local law enfrocement websites. Due to fair housing standards Realtors are not allowed to tell a prospective buyer that one neighborhood is safer than another.

Good luck!

What areas would rent to sex offenders and are they able to buy a house?

WOW, if sex offenders have been convicted city need approve their residence register with city. However if just an assumption perhaps contact Police Department further investigate situation.

There are a few great resources around. I think it is best to contact your Community Resource Officer or CRO at the police department. Just call the main non-emergency number and ask to be connected to the CRO. They’re normally very aware of the good and bad areas of the area and can normally give you local statistics. You can also check out http://www.ojp.usdoj.gov/bjs/ which provides stats based on the FBI uniform crime reports. You might also visit the FBI stats site at http://www.fbi.gov/ucr/ucr.htm#cius. Another place to checkout is http://www.Crimeweb.net . Hope this is of you to you.

Danielle,
The reason for reporting where sex offenders live is so that the persons living next to them may be aware of the dangers to themselves or there children.
If they are living next to you then you weigh whether you want to live near them. If they once lived in a property there is no lasting damage as in a dope house.
