Search the online registry at www.iowasexoffenders.com. The information is provided from the Iowa Sex Offender Registry to the public pursuant to Iowa Code chapter 692A. The purpose of this information is to allow members of the public a means to protect themselves from individuals who have committed an offense that requires registration on the Sex Offender Registry.
Note: Most sex offenders are not on the registry. Many sex offenders commit acts of sexual abuse for an average of 13 years before they are caught, if they are ever caught. Also, sexually aggressive offenses are sometimes plea-bargained down to an offense that does not meet the Sex Offender Registry criteria.
