The state motto of Iowa is, “Our liberties we prize and our rights we will maintain.” Not only can it be seen on the Iowa state flag, but it holds to our laws and the way our state is run. The motto clearly states that the liberties of the Iowa citizenry are valued and that they are willing to defend them. In the same way, current laws and law enforcement were created as a way to protect and maintain the peace of the public.

United States Senator Byron Dorgan (D-ND) and Senator Arlen Specter (R-PA) hold a press conference to introduce legislation that would establish a national sex-offender database that the public could access over the Internet April 14, 2005 at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, DC. The legislation, called "Dru's Law," is named after Dru Sjodin, a North Dakota woman who was abducted from a Grand Forks mall in November 2003 and found murdered six months later in a ditch. According to the Senators' press release, the man accused of the crime, Alfonso Rodriguez, Jr. had served a 23-year prison term as a violent sexual offender in Minnesota and had been released from prison even though he was rated "high risk" for re-offending.

The Iowa code states;

"an individual who has been convicted or adjudicated of a criminal offense against a minor, sexual exploitation, or a sexually violent crime or who was on probation, parole, or work release status, or who was incarcerated on or after July 1, 1995 is required to register. Registration includes individuals who have received deferred sentences or deferred judgments, as well as those convicted of qualifying federal sex offenses or sex offenses from other states, U.S. territories or Indian tribal nations. The information on this website is provided by the Iowa Sex Offender Registry to the public pursuant to Iowa Code chapter 692A to aid in identifying and locating individuals who have committed an offense that requires registration on the Sex Offender Registry."

All information is available on this public website. The individuals found on this web page are considered absconders and are in a non-compliance status with local jurisdictions. Do not attempt to apprehend any of these offenders yourself. Report any information to DPS or your local law enforcement.

Offenders are placed on Tier systems. Tier levels are based solely on the offense or offenses for which a person is currently registered. They are only used to establish how many times each year a registered sex offender is required to report in person to their Sheriff’s Office to verify registration information.

  • Tier I offenders are required to verify their information every year;
  • Tier II offenders are required to verify their information every six months;
  • Tier III offenders are required to verify their information every three months.

A person’s tier level does not have an effect on whether the person is subject to the 2,000-foot law, how long they are required to register, or any other element of sex offender registration. It is only used to determine how often the person must update their registration. Here's Iowa's top 10 on the state's sex offender Most Wanted list.
