Pursuant to Sec. 72.155 of the Texas Government Code, “… Only an authorized user (court clerk), the attorney general, a district attorney, a criminal district attorney, a county attorney, a municipal attorney, or a peace officer may access information under the registry. “ For security and data integrity purposes, OCA requires that the heads of these agencies and terminal agency coordinators manage the users from their respective agencies, including granting access to the system.

For Agency Heads and Terminal Agency Coordinators, you are designated as a RESTRICTED USER and you may have already been uploaded into the system with protective order user rights.
