Free Iowa Background Checks and Criminal Records

With a crime threat level of three, Iowa is a fairly safe place to live, but that doesn't mean there aren't any bad guys in this beautiful state. There were 66,000 crimes reported in 2006, and crime stats rank Iowa higher than the national average in rape and theft. Iowa residents can protect themselves with a background and criminal records check from Free Background Checks USA.

At Free Background Checks USA, we search all available public records to get you the information you need to protect yourself and your family. You can perform a similar check on your own, but you would have to contact the Division of Criminal Investigations SOR Unit for sex offender information as well as the Iowa Department of Corrections for incarceration records, and that's just the beginning of the research you would have to do.
