AUSTIN, Texas -- The Texas Department of Public Safety unveiled a redesigned sex offender Web site on Wednesday.

The revamped site allows users to subscribe to e-mail notifications about changes in an offender's record or ZIP Code.

It also provides more precise mapping to allow users to search by name, address ZIP Code and county. That also will show how close the offender lives to the user's address.

Other new features provide the offender's complete work address, whether he attends a college or university, his occupational license information and a list of his in-state and out-of-state offenses.
