How to find mugshots in Iowa
Both the Iowa Department of Corrections and the County Sheriff’s offices are in charge of the criminal records of inmates. Some county offices share this information through online databases, where searches can be performed by name. Other county offices provide the information by phone, mail, or a personal visit.
