Waiver Information:
Iowa law does not require a waiver. However, without a signed waiver from the subject of the
request any arrest over 18 months old, without a final disposition, cannot be released to a non-law
enforcement agency.
Deferred judgments where DCI has received notice of successful completion of probation also cannot
be released to non-law enforcement agencies without a signed waiver from the subject of the request.
If the “No Iowa Criminal History Record found with DCI” box is checked, it could mean that the
information on file is not releasable per Iowa law without a waiver.
General Information:
The information requested is based on name and exact date of birth only. Without fingerprints, a
positive identification cannot be assured. If a person disputes the accuracy of information maintained
by the Department, they may challenge the information by writing to the address on the front of this
form or personally appearing at DCI headquarters during normal business hours.
The records maintained by the Iowa Department of Public Safety are based upon reports from other
criminal justice agencies and therefore, the Department cannot guarantee the completeness of the
information provided.
The criminal history record check is of the Iowa Central Repository (DCI) only. The DCI files do not
include other states’ records, FBI records, or subjects convicted in federal court within Iowa.
In Iowa, a deferred judgment is not considered a conviction once the defendant has been discharged
after successfully completing probation. However, it should be noted that a deferred judgment may
still be considered as an offense when considering charges for certain specified multiple offense
crimes, i.e. second offense OWI. If a disposition reflects that a deferred judgment was given, you
may want to inquire of the individual his or her current status.
A deferred sentence is a conviction. The judge simply withholds implementing a sentence for a
certain probationary period. If probation is successful, the sentence is not carried out.
Any questions in reference to Iowa criminal history records can be answered by writing to the address
on the front of this form or calling (515) 725-6066 between 8:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday -
Friday.
REMINDER - (1) Send in a separate Request Form for each last name, (2) a fee is required for each
last name submitted, (3) a completed Billing Form must be submitted with all request(s).
Iowa law requires employers to pay the fee for potential employees’ record checks.
