There are several options for requesting Iowa criminal history record check information. These include mail, fax, in person, or email. We do not accept phone requests. 

All requests must include, at minimum, a first name, last name, and exact date of birth for the subject of the request. The gender, social security number, and middle name are not required. This information can help with the resolution of common names and dates of birth and should be included if available.

*The fee for an Iowa Criminal History Record Check through the DCI is $15 per last name. Each last name requested requires a separate form and payment. We accept cash, checks, money orders, and credit/debit cards (MasterCard, Visa, Discover).
