Iowa Criminal Records

1) Free searches - listed below. Iowa provides free access to a wide range of criminal record databases. To do your own search we suggest that you start with the “Court Records” resource below, which is a database from the Iowa Courts that includes statewide criminal court records. Basic searches are free, but case details require a subscription and $25 per month fee. You can also check your subject’s name against the databases below for Iowa state inmates, federal inmates, statewide registered offenders, and federal criminal records (the inexpensive PACER system). Also featured below are resources for available city and county databases for arrests, inmates, police incident reports, and crime maps.

2) Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation Public Access.  Use the resource titled “Criminal Histories | Public Access” below for court records of criminal convictions. The cost is $15 per search and does not require a waiver signature from the subject. $15.00 per search.  2-5 business days.

3) Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation Official Search.  Use the resource titled “Criminal Histories | Official” for information from the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation (DCI) on how to order an official criminal history check by mail or fax.  The official search requires a consent form signed by the subject of the search and the results include arrest information.  $15.00 per search.  Immediate results.

4) Search Systems State, National, and International Criminal Records. Criminals don't stop at state borders.  Expand your search with our Search Systems Premium criminal record database - the largest available to the public online containing over 400 million criminal records in all states.  Includes over 70 national and international terrorist, debarred persons, and most wanted databases.  The cost per search is $14.95 and results are immediate.  See Inside Edition's report on YouTube.

Our Iowa records include Administrative Office of Courts felony and misdemeanor convictions, Department of Corrections inmates records, offenders on probation, and registered offenders. A search of Iowa records only is $9.95, immediate results.

Note:  Options 2, 3, and 4 above do not include U.S. Federal Records, so we also recommend a PACER search and federal inmate search if you want to be thorough.
