I need to record conversations in Texas.

That would depend on the reason you were recording the conversation, whether you had the other person's consent to record the conversation, and possibly the laws of the state in which the other person resides. It would certainly be best to discuss this idea with an attorney before pursuing it.

If you are working with law enforcement. Under certain circumstances it is permissable, such as assisting law enforcement or an answering machine. Ask the DA, it depends on the circumstance.

It's not if you think that someone is going to hurt themselves or others. If they are hurting you or threatening you the recorded conversation could be vital in locking this person up.
