The Texas Civil Commitment Office is a small state agency tasked with the huge responsibility of providing intensive supervision and treatment to sexually violent predators. TCCO recognizes that the civil commitment of sexually violent predators to long-term, comprehensive, and offense-specific supervision and treatment is necessary for the protection of the citizens of the State of Texas. TCCO's administration is focused on the agency's equally important responsibilities for public safety, supervision, and treatment.

The TCCO's mission is to enhance public safety by developing and implementing strategic management policies to protect the citizens of Texas and enhance protection of victims and potential victims through research-based management of civilly committed sexually violent predators.
