DES MOINES (KWWL) - The Iowa Department of Public Safety (DPS), Division of Criminal Investigation (DCI) unveiled the newly re-designed Sex Offender Registry database and web site, www.iowasexoffender.com

With recent changes in state legislation regarding sex offenders, law enforcement collected more information on registrants.

It also includes:

  • Continued email notification to subscribers.
  • Offender photos and conviction information with links to related Iowa code sections.
  • Information regarding registered offenders subject to exclusionary zones, residency restrictions and employment restrictions.
