Background searches are sometimes needed for employment purposes and even simple curiosity. Sometimes you might have an instinctive feeling that a person in your life isn’t telling the truth and want to check further into his or her background. If that person has previously lived in Iowa, you can conduct a state search to find the record, if any. It’s fairly simple. All you have to do to conduct a state search for Iowa criminal records is to download and fill out an Iowa Criminal Background Request form. There’s also a billing form to fill out so the state can charge you the $13 search fee. Be sure to include the person’s date of birth and social security number if possible to ensure the accuracy of the report. This should be mailed together to the following address:
Iowa Dept. of Public Safety
Iowa Div. of Criminal Investigation
215 E. 7th St.
Des Moines, IA 50319
Phone: (515) 725-6066
In the past most searches were conducted by employers to ensure that facts on the resume or job application are accurate. Now, ordinary people are using searches to find out about people who have entered their lives in many ways. You may want to search the background of a potential caregiver for an elderly person or your own children. Backgrounds are also searched for new people in the neighborhood, a new coach or teacher at a school and almost any reason that you want to ensure the safety of you and/or your family.
Private Internet search sites provide much more flexibility to you and can ensure a more accurate report because they’re not restricted by the same rules that most states have. Plus, their powerful and far-reaching databases and search engines are designed to cross-reference names and other information to be sure the report you get is as accurate and timely as possible. And, while it sometimes takes weeks for you to receive a criminal record report through the mail, the Internet sites usually take only minutes. Iowa arrest records can be searched, cross-referenced and made into a comprehensive report that you can easily understand – within minutes. You don’t have to reveal who you are and why you want the record as requested by some states. You may also get more information from a private search service. Because of the privacy laws of most states, they’re only allowed to release certain information contained on the criminal record, but private search sites won’t have the same restrictions and this can ensure the accuracy of the report you receive. Today’s world dictates that we take our safety and the safety of our families into our own hands to protect future tragedies and disasters. Discover how an online search service can help you reveal Iowa criminal records and set your mind at ease about a person in your life.
